  Description     : Create KIWI image descriptions based on snippets

Keg is a tool which helps to create and manage image descriptions for use with
the KIWI appliance builder. A KIWI image description consists of a single XML
document that specifies type, configuration, and content of the image to
build. Optionally there can be configuration scripts and overlay archives
added to an image description, which allow for further configuration and
additional content.

Since KIWI image descriptions are monolithic, maintaining a number of image
descriptions that have considerable overlap with respect to content and setup
can be cumbersome and error-prone. Keg attempts to alleviate that by allowing
image descriptions to be broken into modules. Those modules can be composed in
different ways in so called image definitions, and modules can inherit from
parent modules which allows for fine-tuning for specific image setups.
Configuration scripts and overlay archives can also be generated in a modular

This package depends on the `kiwi` package, along with various Python modules.
