We want to improve the quality and reliability of the build environment as well as the available targets.
  
-Beside our main concerns we also focus on an improved user experience. To achieve this we have rewritten the commands to operate the build process into a single starting point, the '​sde'​ command. Now it is no longer needed to memorize multiple commands. Only one command is needed and this command even supplies help if needed.+Beside our main concerns we also focus on an improved user experience.

-Our oak tree based mascot is all about symbolism (see wikipedia). For instance the oak is a common symbol of strength and endurance. The life span of oaks typically ranges from 200 to 600 years, with a few species even reaching 1,000 years. Also oak trees are known to provide shelter and grow tall and strong.+FIXME Our oak tree based mascot is all about symbolism (see wikipedia).

 This is exactly what we have in mind for OpenSDE and OpenSDE based targets. Targets are the seedlings that grown on the OpenSDE tree, like acorns in an oak. We want these seedlings to grown tall and become strong and enduring, just like the proverb '​Mighty oaks from tiny acorns grow'. With the right nurture and care the OpenSDE tree can last for generations. This is exactly what we have in mind for OpenSDE and OpenSDE based targets.

 Building your custom Operating System can take quite some time, depending on the chosen target, the number of included packages and the host system on which you are building. Building your custom Operating System can take quite some time, depending on the chosen target, the number of included packages and the host system on which you are building.
