BUGID#_1083 - documentation/poky-ref-manual/usingpoky.xml: -k option added
In the section 2.1.1 BitBake I added a paragraph at the end of the discussion about BitBake explaining the benefits of the '-k' and '--continue' options.

So for example, before building <filename>matchbox-desktop</filename> BitBake

+ A useful BitBake option to consider is the <filename>-k</filename> or
+ <filename>&dash;&dash;continue</filename> option.
+ This option instructs BitBake to try and continue processing the job as much
+ as possible even after encountering an error. When an error occurs the target that
+ failed and those that depend on it cannot be remade. However, when you use this
+ option other dependencies can still be processed.
