Redpill systems are developed by multiple efforts in parallel.
Production systems are configured by hand
using Redpill conventions,
on mostly conventional hardware devices.
Experimental systems are configured semi-automated
using Boxer bootstrapping
and Redpill conventions,
on mostly OSHA-certified hardware devices.
Goal is to compose all Redpill systems purely with Boxer
on purely OSHA-certified hardware.
The "box" project in the tinker team composes "profiles".
Device-specific "core" profiles provided as readily usable images,
with addon profiles embedded as system-expansion shell scripts.
Goal is for the "box" project to become obsolete,
replaced by short sensible one-liner boxer commands.
Boxer classes and nodes are expressed as YAML data.
Tweaks should be pushed upstream into appropriate Debian packages
e.g. using debconf.
Goal is to auto-resolve boxer data from apt where possible
and obsolete all tweaks.
Goal is to provide same configurability at runtime
as debian-installer provides at install time,
either executing boxer directly or using boxer-generated scripts,
and offer dynamic runtime-resolved equivalent of metapackages.
System functionalities are grouped in sets of "features"
targeting different real-world puposes.
Goal is for all functionalities to be sensibly covered by features
and each feature contain a decent minimum documentation
usable both standalone and coherently as a system documentation.
