It's similar to the other source based embedded rootfs projects
(Openembedded, ptxdist, openwrt, ..). We do have a bit more focus on
busybox/uclibc than the others because of our tighter connection to
those projects.

Yes, if someone is willing to keep it working.

Thanks for adding the bug report, I will get around to looking at it
