I was curious about at what point does the Petalinux project source the kernel and the u-boot files?
1. Is it while creating the project?
2. Is it while configuring the project?
3. Is it while building the project and the images.
This is very important. Also it would be nice to know in which format or file compression are the Kernel and u-boot sourced?
Are all the packages downloaded in the yocto repository sourced during configuration or during building?
Clarfiications would be deeply appreciated.

Hi @keyshavmor2611 ,
Once configuration is done. Then Source will be fetched while building the project.
Kernel image(image.ub) if FIT image format will consist of Kernel executable, device tree and rootfs.
U-boot is u-boot.elf binded along with Boot image.
You can refer UG1208 to understand about Boot images and creating Boot.bin
