  just noticed the following property for a bunch of the openstack
layers at:


some of the layer.conf files contain the line:

BBFILES += "${LAYERDIR}/recipes*/*/*.bb ${LAYERDIR}/recipes*/*/*.bbappend ${LAYERDIR}/classes/*.bbclass"

why is the classes/ directory being appended to BBFILES? i thought the
purpose of BBPATH was to contain locations of .conf and .bbclass
files. i'm puzzled by the above.
