Rebel Mountain is released

The Baserock team, and Codethink Limited are proud to announce the first public release of the Baserock system build infrastructure. In this release, Rebel Mountain we are pleased to be able to showcase the ability of Baserock to build a system entirely from Git repositories.

What is in Rebel Mountain

Rebel Mountain is a development release of Baserock. It consists of a VM image for x86_64 for ease of development and that image contains everything necessary to rebuild Baserock and to do basic development; including git, vim, ssh etc.

How do I get started?

You can find a quick start guide on the Baserock wiki and also a short guide on developing with Baserock which follows on from the quick start and shows you how to get to the point of proving you can build Baserock within Baserock.

From that point on, your imagination is the limit. We're working on several things we hope to showcase later in the year and you can follow some of that development in the Git repositories we publish.

How do I get in contact

The Baserock project has an IRC channel and mailing list for developers to gather and discuss anything associated with Baserock. It is strongly recommended that you use the IRC and lists to contact the team for anything associated with the public development of Baserock. We also have a mailing list for announcements which will be notified of any new releases or big developments in Baserock.

Should you manage to find a bug in Baserock, we'd like to hear from you. You can find our bug reporting guidelines on the Baserock wiki and we will do our best to help.
