this is a major problem. There is no HowTo because the project is in an
early stage ... it under heavy development and I guess people like
rather to code than to write HowTos ;-)
For the Wookey article check
(I tried to add the link to the FAQ on the Wiki but I get an error
message saving the changes :-( )
But be warned that it may be out of date. EmdebSys it is deprecated anyway.
Wookey made a presentation on the DebConf5 last week. I have no clue if
this presentation is already in the Web.
Wookey could you place your presentation on the Wiki?
You should take a look at the Stag project which you may find at
There you find also better documentation.
