Thomas, All,

On 2013-11-02 17:17 +0100, Thomas Petazzoni spake thusly:
> The BR2_PACKAGE_QT_JAVASCRIPTCORE option was incorrectly used in
> Buildroot: it's help text and name was pretending it's here to

In fact, I think we should include it in legacy options, just so the
user is informed that this option is no longer available.

Your little blurb above would make a good help entry for that new legacy
option, BTW.
