I'm trying to understand how bitbake parses the poky directory tree a little better.

The best I can figure all .bb files are NOT included. Just some of them are. I'm guessing that the .bb in the meta/recipe-sato named is the one that is used to start the parsing if bitbake core-image-sato is executed.
I originally thought all subdirectories of a path included in BBLAYER were parsed looking for .bb files, but now I know that is not true, but not sure why.

For example, it does not appear that webkit is included in the core-image-sato even though the recipe-sato directory includes the webkit subdirectory with it's recipe. What would be the proper way of adding the webkit to core-image-sato??

the layer.conf in meta/conf includes and covers  all .bb files under it like receipe-sato, which includes web-webkit.  So does this say that the web-webkit get's built by bitbake, but the images does not contain web-webkit until you put in the IMAGE_INSTALL += "web-webit"???
