those whitelists/excludes is awkward, as developers constantly want
more of them.
Hmm, this rings a bell. Likely yes then :)

But on the other hand this way we're quite explicit about what GPLv3 things
we allow to compile. Compiling too much also hurts with compilation times too and for
many use cases developers are better off working with Debian or Ubuntu tooling than
compiling every bell and whistle with yocto.

My list of GPLv3 recipes enabled for compilation is quite stable at:

autoconf
bash
bc
binutils
bison
cairo
ccache
coreutils
diffutils
elfutils
findutils
gawk
gcc
gdb
gdbm
gettext
gnutls
grep
libevent
libmpc
libpipeline
libunistring
m4
make
mpfr
python-rfc3987
python-strict-rfc3339
readline
rsync
sed
tcpreplay
which

Cheers,
