ouch.... nice scripts! i think i was just re-doing them locally ;-)
thanks for pointing this out.

especially because it explains why Will was trying to remove all the
components mentioned in my previous email.

i would tend to say that the scripts is wrong when it 'recomments'
'remove from buildroot'. It looks like you check only for the
components in the 'src/everything' folder, however as I said in my
previous email, some components are generally not included in the
release, like the applications.
