I am glad to read this and I am sure all people involved with Yocto or meta-
freescale (be it PowerPC or ARM) will be glad as well.

Our main objective is to make it easy for first use but flexible when some
more advanced is need. This give us a good balance which allows Yocto to be
used from small and simple projects to mass production and heavily
customized embedded Linux system.

Those are very good news. It is quite important to have more companies and
people aboard so more use cases can be covered.

Ok, we'll pester you guys! :)
