Welcome to the Baserock open source project. Baserock aims to be a great way to build custom appliance systems with Linux. Baserock currently supports x86_32 and x86_64 and ARMv7 (big/little endian, soft/hard float). We're also working on ppc64, mips64, and ARMv8.

Our objectives are outlined on the overview and developer experience pages.
