I agree, a bulleted list would be nice. I would like to see discussions
of points an "emdebian" target would _need_ to hit:
* Have an emdebian-indep target
* Have an emdebian-arch target
* Targets must remove all Documentation
* Targets must remove unused locale information.
* targets must strip --strip-debug,--strip-unneeded, and
--remove-section=.note from binaries
* built against uclibc version/deb package x.x <---- Erik ???
Another point i thought of is what are to do with some of the scripts?
For instance, in know pcmcia-cs scripts require many other small
utilities to function, such as kill, filename, etc. etc. Would an
emdebian target touch those scripts (more work for maintainers), or just
leave them be ?
