[Letux-kernel] LetuxOS git repo names

for years we had a "gta04-" in the repo names, (e.g.
gta04-kernel.git, gta04-makesd.git) which always
gave the false impression this is work for GTA04
hardware only and nothing else.

But for a long time it also provides support for
BeagleBone, BeagleBone Black, Pocket Beagle,
Pandaboard, OMAP5UEVM, OpenPandora, Pyra and
recently even the Udoo neo.

Basically Letux OS wants to support a multitude of
devices in an equally useable state so that you
can copy/swap root file systems between them.

This means that the work always should keep in mind to
reduce visibility of hardware differences from the
user-space and ideally even from the kernel.

But by focussing on "gta04-" names, this goal is
quite hidden instead of being the headline.

Therefore the git repo names are now duplicated with
a letux- prefix and the gta04- prefix is deprecated.
The gta04- prefix will not be removed immediately
but a some time in the future.

For all projects see:


So please change your git remotes ("git remote remove"
+ "git remote add" or "git remote set-url") to point
to the new repo names.

BR and thanks,
