I don't think so. Let's stay here for the moment :-)

Our first impression when we saw soletta was: wow, they did it right.

That's nice to read. You mean just the build or the project itself? Share your ideas and needs please :-)

And now you are removing autotools and replace that by Kconfig. I don't
think that this is a good idea, especially when things make further
progress and there will be modules with external dependencies.

Our hope is that it will make life easier as we already have modules with external dependencies such as udev and systemd. Tracking that with autotools was becoming more and more of a burden, like conflicts and depends.


Are you sure you took care of things like out-of-tree builds and cross
compilation in a clean environment?

As you saw in your second email, things are broken and people are looking into fixing them. Unfortunately it broke, fortunately doesn't seem a huge thing to fix  

All experience from packaging > 600 tools for ptxdist shows, that any
package that tries to be smarter than autotools and invent their own
build system didn't take care of many important things.

Got you. That's why I started it using autotools. :-) upon request from many people we decided to try Kbuild. If it does not work we can always go back to autotools.
