Nice work!

One thing I would tweak is this sentence in the description:

"build2 is next grade C++ build tool and package manager, like conan+cmake 
or vcpkg."

IMO, build2 is actually quite different from cmake/conan/vcpkg. Maybe a
better description would be:

"build2 is a next-generation, Cargo-like integrated build system and
package manager for C++."
