Debian is mostly about native development
The size of the binaries is not an issue on desktop systems.
Lots of documentation included - not needed on the embedded systems.
Dealing with optimisations
Software management on the target vs host
Using other C libraries than glibc
Remove perl from 'Essential'.
Native is good, cross-building is useful.
Small is good, tiny is better.
Documentation – however good – has to be dropped.
Optimisations can also be a source of new bugs.
New langupdate tool to adapt apt to separate translation files, otherwise using normal apt methods to manage packages on target.
