As I use to do a minimal *.bian install on my SoC hardware, which I afterwards move to the Devuan repositories, while keeping the related original "firmware" repository, I must confess that the whole "embedded"-thing is still somewhat unclear to me, at least regarding kernel and firmware updates. I'd be more than happy to get a hint towards an honest introduction to this topic.
