s/Now functionality integrated/Integrate functionality/
Maybe add something like:
* Replace limited Makefile with new build.sh script
And btw, I'm not sure 'releng' is a good name for the default configs, 'releng' is the name of the team doing the work and releasing images, but doesn't really describe the images which will be generated. I think something like 'installation-images' or 'official-images' or 'official-installation-images' or something would be better (the last one has my preference)
