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, but can you write it 
out please? The bug report[1] asking for the mailing list creation did not 
include the justification.
