  Target Milestone: ---

I have a minor docs comment.


In the user guide, section "9.1. Recommended directory structure" the directory
tree shows two files for a br2 external tree: 

+-- Config.in (if using a br2-external tree)
+-- external.mk (if using a br2-external tree)

The documentation further down suggests that three files are needed:

9.2.1. Layout of a br2-external tree

A br2-external tree must contain at least those three files, described in the
following chapters:


Most likely the external.desc file is missing from the top section?
