    That might not be all of the reasons. It's not just whitespaces
that got reverted, but things that are very important to John, Amaur
and me, such as AVR32 toolchain. That was pretty much the turning
point. I even dare to say that it was the wishes of every single AVR32
user to keep the buildroot toolchain support, but then again, my
arguments either felt in to deaf ears or were just not compelling

   Anyway, even though I do plan to commit and support upstream
buildroot, I will still keep committing to the google buildroot as
well, for that reason. The platform/processor that we all who have
access to the google fork use the most simply does not work upstream,
and we hear objections when we try to improve that.

   If disk space is more important, that's fine and I'm not going to
try to change that, we just move that part to Google who doesn't have
any issues with AVR32 patches.

Kind Regards,
