Any plans to support Yocto on ARM32?
This post: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/iot-edge/support indicates that Yocto on ARM32 is not supported. Will it be? And, if so, will the ARM Python SDK for IoT Edge (suggested here: https://feedback.azure.com/forums/907045-azure-iot-edge/suggestions/34976278-arm-python-sdk-for-azure-iot-edge) work on Yocto?
We have published preview layers for IoT Edge on Yocto – https://github.com/azure/meta-iotedge. There is still work to be done before this becomes a Tier 1 OS; however you can start playing with it and providing feedback now.
As far as Python support, you should probably be able to build a Yocto image that supports Python. You’ll have to include the layers required by the Python SDK. This SDK is going through a rewrite at the moment; however you can see a preview at – https://github.com/Azure/azure-iot-sdk-python-preview

I am pleased to see support for this is now planned. Any idea as to an approximate timeline?
