John, others,
"The name LEDE stands for Linux Embedded Development Environment."
sounds like build system only.
I would vote for separating build system into separate project.
Actually, if you remember, I was proposing this several years ago. It
would make more sense and would better fit LEDE name. Though "Linux"
can be subtracted from there as it's capable of building also MCU
