+ <li><b>21 February 2005 -- Buildroot webpage added</b><p>
+ Buildroot is a set of Makefiles and patches that makes it easy generate a
+ cross-compilation toolchain and root filesystem for your target Linux
+ system using the <a href= "http://www.uclibc.org/">uClibc C library</a>.
+ Buildroot is useful mainly for people working with small or embedded
+ systems. Embedded systems often use processors that are not the regular
+ x86 processors everyone is used to using on their PC. It can be PowerPC
+ processors, MIPS processors, ARM processors, etc. And to be extra safe,
+ you do not need to be root to build or run buildroot.
+ And as of today buildroot even has its own webpage, making it a first class
+ citizen of uclibc.org and busybox.net, and more importantly, make it easy
+ to find and point to buildroot.
+ If you find a bug in buildroot, or wish to submit a patch to fix a problem
+ or add a shiny new feature, please use the <a
+ href="http://bugs.uclibc.org/">Bug and Patch Tracking System</a> to post
+ the details, to make certain your work is not lost.
