  Description     : Componentized Linux Platform Development Kit (PDK)

 Componentized Linux is a platform for building specialized Linux
 distributions.  Componentized Linux provides developers with a set of
 reusable building blocks, called components, which can be easily 
 assembled into a wide variety of configurations and customized as 
 necessary. It combines this componentized platform with a set of
 technologies (covering installation, software management, and hardware
 detection, with more on the way) that span traditional distribution
 boundaries and transform the assembled components into a complete
 This package contains the Componentized Linux Platform Development
 Kit (PDK). Essentially, you can think of the PDK as "version control for
 distributions"--it's intended to be a full suite of tools for building 
 and maintaining a CL-based distribution, from assembling a full distro
 from a set of pre-built components to managing the evolution of the
 distro over time to incorporate upstream changes to building your own
 custom components to specifying global configuration like branding to
 integrating distro-specific patches and managing the changes over time.
