Dongxiao: sysroot per machine per recipe
Is it possible to elaborate on this topic? What was discussed and what
was the conclusion?
This is what we discussed in person in Cambridge, the idea of making it
possible to have one sysroot per machine or one sysroot per recipe. Our
intention is to make this work in the next few months.

I pointed you at the existing task based sstate code which should make
this kind of thing relatively straight forward.
This definitely sounds interesting.

Will it be possible to have recipe A (build) depend on B, which (build)
depends on C, without having C in the per recipe stage of A?
Yes, that is the plan. I'm hoping this allows us to rigorously check
package dependencies and whilst we might not default to it all the time,
it would allow us to test this periodically.

Will it be possible to have recipe A (build) depend on selected files
from B, f.x. only a subset of libraries built by a recipe?
This currently isn't planned.
