Dear Samuel Martin,

I am not convinced we should mix "Buildroot Developers Meeting"
references with other Buildroot talks. While "Buildroot Developers
Meeting" listing definitely has its place in the "Getting involved"
section, the list of Buildroot talks, with pointers to slides and video
is useful for much more than people willing to get deeply involved in
Buildroot development. For example, the last talk from Peter at
ELCE2013, or the talk "Using Buildroot for real projects" I gave a few
years ago, make sense for users.

Best regards,

Thomas

I agree.

So, things related to Buildroot internal community (like GSoC, BR dev. days)
should stay in the "Getting involved" section, while the other items,
mostly talks
or presentation of BR should go as appendices maybe.

Then, this appendices could be referred from many place in the manual:
- the "Adding new package to Buildroot" section;
- a to-be-written section dealing with "Workflow with Buildroot" or
something like that;
- ...

Any comments about this?

Regards,

Patch
