> OSTree is a tool for developing, building, and deploying Linux-based operating systems.  It is most similar to tools like dpkg and rpm in "Linux distributions". However, it is not a package system (though one could be built on top).

I have to say I thus don't understand what it does if it's similar to
dpkg/rpm but is not a package system. What does it do that dpkg/rpm do
which is not package management?

I guess you should add something like: it installs binaries, but
replacing the "package" abstraction with [...] (what?), and add usage
