Welcome to the Baserock open source project. Baserock aims to be
a great way to build appliance systems with Linux.
The current releases target
Project background, objectives and design
thinking are outlined in the overview.
The current Baserock base-system requires approximately 25M loc, looking something like this:
We also maintain a Baserock GENIVI Baseline for the GENIVI Alliance, which is driving adoption of open source software in vehicles. From our initial assessment this seems to be around 32M loc - Ohloh would probably count the total higher:
You can join the conversation at
and there are mailing lists for Linux developers interested in using or keeping up
to date with the project.
Baserock is a young project - documentation is evolving. As a result readers probably need a lot of background knowledge to understand the project, for example,
- Deployment and use of Linux-based software
- Software development for Linux
- Linux configuration management
- Distributed version control, particularly Git
Ultimately our intention is to simplify the process of Linux appliance development and deployment; documentation will be extended to support less expert participants.
