Can you give some background on what the problem is in the first place? What is
a tiny base runtime? What is bst? Why was it chosen? Your text talks about
replacing Yocto (a well-known, well-established project with 10 years of
history) with bst, so you need to justify. Or I misunderstood you.
If there have been previous discussions on this subject on other mailing
lists, can you point them out?
I think I can guess why you want this in freedesktop.org, but can you write it
out please? The bug report asking for the mailing list creation did not
include the justification.
