Does it really fit in the "Cross-distro devroom" ? I guess by "Cross"
they don't mean "cross-compilation", but rather exchanges between
distributions such as Gentoo, Fedora, Ubuntu, etc. Does Buildroot
really fit in the middle of those discussions? I believe we have quite
different use cases, needs, requirements, etc.

But in any case, I'm definitely interested in proposing a talk related
to Buildroot. Let's sync on how's going to propose what.
