If I am building an image “image-ABC”, and it is composed of a

Which is the best place to modify the build with bbappend ?
Would I modify a recipe’s do_install (do_install_append-recipe_xyz)
?, or would I modify the image recipe (do_install_append-image_ABC)
I am leaning this way to avoid cases where the component recipes
might have bbappends in place already ?
i would think start with defining a minimal image, then define other
images based on that one which add more recipes. this has nothing to
do with redefining the recipes, it just means defining more than one
