Hey again Ross sorry I know I already sent this meant to hit reply all.

Meant to say for layers that contain recipes that clone different implementations of VLC and want to allow the ability to select an implementation. Would be nice to have PROVIDES = "virtual/vlc" here versus multiple different layers providing bbappend files that add the PROVIDES variable.

Working in PR were we want to allow either upstream implementation of VLC or raspberry pi distro implementation.

I still don’t see the need: meta-raspberrypi’s vlc-rpi can PROVIDE vlc and set PREFERRED_PROVIDER.
