Linux After a bit over 20 months, work on ROCK 3 has been completed. ROCK is a Distribution Build Kit. This means it is a tool to create and maintain GNU/Linux distributions. With a few keystrokes and some patience, you can have a generic distribution up in a short time. With some more work, you can adjust its package selection. With the help of freshmeat and the power of autotools you can add new packages in a heartbeat. The ChangeLog is available and the Roadmap for ROCK 4 is already there, too.

T2 and Rock

The T2 project - that is originally a Rock fork - seems to have even more ambitious and flexible distribution build system:

For example (from their info): "Currently, the Linux kernel is normally used - but we are expanding to Hurd, OpenDarwin and OpenBSD; more to come."

Anybody has experience of them and can compare them to each other? Or compare them to other source-based distributions (Gentoo, SMGL etc.)?
