FYI Joel and I have revisited the definition of 3rd party packages deciding what
we have is not right or clear defined.
Joel's view which he told me while he was driving and I hope I got correct is:
1. There are packages we develop and maintain, mostly in the RTEMS repo.
2. There are packages we have brought in that we maintain, for example libbsd,
c11 support, etc. These packages include the ones we build via the RSB. We
attempt to make sure they build on all BSPs but there can be limits.
3. External 3rd party packages, cFS/cFE, EPICS, YAFFS and Qt are all examples.
This needs to be explained better in the documentation and the excessive use of
third-party needs to be changed.
