esp-idf or esp-iot-solution?

The getting started guide for ESP-WROVER-KIT instructs to install esp-idf. I see that there is also esp-iot-solution, which includes esp-idf as a submodule. Is it better to get that instead? Getting started guide seems to make no mention of it.

The esp-iot-solution provides a range of solutions, functions and drivers intended for IOT applications.
Review these solutions, functions and drivers, if this is what you may need in your projects.

Same with esp-adf, that is focused on using ESP32 for audio applications, or esp-mdf, that provides application examples using mesh networking.

All these repositories use esp-idf as a submodule. If none of your projects fall into the above categories, then get plain esp-idf.
