Buildroot started life as a test harness for uClibc.  It's maintained by the 
uClibc developers as a way of generating uClibc toolchains for various 
platforms, and building packages against uClibc.  It was only about a month 
ago that buildroot got its own mailing list rather than using the uclibc 
mailing list, and said mailing list is still "buildroot at uclibc.org".

Did this answer your question?

Never bet against the cheap plastic solution.
