A lightning talk about OpenEmbedded, and other build-systems.

OpenEmbedded can be classified as build-system. It heavily relies on build-systems of Free Software projects. Exactly this will be the content of the lightning talk. We will take a look at badly written buildsystems including fontconfig and glibc, understand why these things are bad and how these issues can be resolved. At the end we will look into some requirements you should take into account when picking a buildsystem for your project.
