i've started a personal yocto FAQ, based on questions either i've
asked myself, or colleagues or clients have asked me, and i'm posting
them here (obviously a work in progress, typed in over the last hour):

i'm collecting questions that clearly belong in a "how do i do X?"
FAQ and, even if i don't know the answer, i'm still going to add the
question to remind me to *find* the answer.
Just looking at that page, a couple of items spring to mind:

1) Why are you pointing people to the prefile/postfile options in preference to
just putting the "common, personal configuration" in local.conf?

2) Your IMAGE_INSTALL_append example needs a leading space in the string or it
will almost certainly not work (or at least, it will only work when there's
already a trailing space in the value of IMAGE_INSTALL).
