New Build System Planning

the prototype for the new build system looks good so far. You can find a
prototype implementation of the new build system here:
I do forced pushes to this branch.
You can test it with:
git clone git://git.rtems.org/sebh/rtems.git
git checkout --track origin/build
./waf bsp_defaults --rtems-bsps=sparc > bsps.ini
To build all supported BSPs, you can do:
./waf bsp_list | sed 's/\(.*\)/[\1]/' > all.ini
./waf configure --rtems-options=all.ini
My plan for next week is to do the documentation for the User Manual and
the Software Engineering manual. The new build system introduces the
specification items (Doorstop YAML files). To be able to do
cross-references in the build system documentation I would like to first
integrate the "Requirements Engineering" chapter into the Software
Engineering manual. I will send a v2 of the "eng: Add Software
Requirements Engineering chapter" patch next week.
Before I start to convert the 760 test programs, the 211 BSP variants,
the 449 BSP options, and so on, I would like to get an approval for the
build system prototype, specification, and documentation. I would like
to avoid changing things later with a large data set.
The unit test ("testsuites/build/test.py") is currently only a proof of
concept. It requires Python 3.6+.
* Adding Ada support (tests). It has a low priority to me in the next
five months, but I will work on it.
* Tests which use the 'pax' host tool. I suggest to remove the automatic
build of archives with pax and simply check in the archives as read-only
* Tests which use the 'rtems-ld' and 'rtems-syms' host tools. Some waf
magic is necessary here.
* clang support
