Thanks for the notification. Its great that those recipes are shipped
now on the oe-core layer.

But I don't want to remove those recipes from meta-webkit, even if they
are shipped now there.

That recipes are an essential part of meta-webkit, so I want to be able
to raise the version or change them without depending on oe-core.
For example: sometimes we need to use older versions of yocto, but we
still want to use the last stable version of wpe/libwpe/wpebackend-fdo.
So I find pretty useful to have all the core WPE related recipes on the
meta-webkit layer and not depend on whatever oe-core ships.

There should be no conflict between the recipes as long as the name used
for them its the same, bitbake should simply pick the last version by
