Congratulations you are the first beta tester for the new README.txt
language :) (patched two days ago).

Denys: I suggest

change:

"Due to the above, it is now recommended to follow the instructions
at http://www.angstrom-distribution.org/building-angstrom"

to:

"When the other layer combinations are supported instructions will
be supplied here. Until that time please see the Angstrom setup
instructions below.

*** Angstrom w/ meta-ti Layer Stack setup: ***
Please follow the instructions at
http://www.angstrom-distribution.org/building-angstrom"
i might try something a bit different. given that angstrom is the
tested way to go, by all means, point that out and *strongly*
recommend that approach.

on the other hand, what is the current issue with the yocto/meta-ti
combo? is it *known* to be broken? or is it simply not sufficiently
tested? in cases like that, i see no problem in cautioning people
about it, but telling them that if they're feeling adventurous,
they're welcome to give it a shot but if it breaks, as they say, they
get to keep all the pieces.

don't discourage people from trying it, but make sure you give
proper instructions for how to use it, that's all. unless, as i said,
it's really and truly unusable.
