I'm a yocto newbie and so I'm becoming familiar with the documentation.
I came across a bitbake feature that is somewhat confusing to me regarding
the difference between optional/required inclusion versus inheritance.
As far as optional/required inclusion is concerned, the documentation
states quite clearly that the main difference is that the former will not
issue an error message if the specified file is not found while the latter
will so there is no issue here.
My issue has to do with the 'inherit' command. Sounds to me like 'include'
and 'require' already do the trick so I'm curious to know what value does
'inherit' bring ?
Any clarification would be extremely appreciated.
