Oliver, I get your point and I agree with it. I think the best thing is to look at how other projects did this. I started a discussion here: https://github.com/openwisp/openwisp-dev-env/issues/2
Gitlab has a tool called Gitlab Development Kit, which is called with a command line tool named gdk, so commands look like "gdk init", "gdk update" and so on. I like this approach, but I would like to find out more examples before deciding. If I'm not wrong, if we use a Makefile we necessarily have to call "make" from the directory in which the Makefile is saved, right? Or not? F.
