How can I add/install packages from OpenWRT into the top level package directory of the build tree? I would like to add packages with their dependencies and have the package source copied into the package directory at the top level of the tree.
I installed and built my image with the additional package and dependencies using feeds, but it installed links in the package/feeds directory that point to the source packages in the feeds directory. I would like to install the new package source and dependencies in the top level packages directory instead, like the other packages in the tree.
Also, when I built my project with the new packages from feeds and pushed to my git repo, clones from that repo don't build with the new packages. What is the workflow to update the build tree with new package sources (using feeds) and preserve the package source in the tree?
Thanks in advance for any help.
