Description : 64 Studio GNU/Linux Platform Development Kit (PDK)
PDK is a platform for building specialized GNU/Linux distributions. PDK
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 distribution.
This package contains the 64 Studio GNU/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 component-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.
