Just thought I would give rock some loving . I’ve been putting off trying rock until it hit 2.0, and now that it has, I’m on spring break away from spring break. grrr. Because Rock has been labeled a “Distribution Build Kit” that handles deps and such, I have been meaning to try it on some embedded toys I have lying around.
Keep up the good work!
