How are the GameShell OS image files generated?

Hi,

The thread for the v0.4 image of clockwork OS GameShell OS image files (v0.4 latest) being a bit long, here is a new thread about questions I have on how this image is built/generated ?

Does anyone know how this image is being built ? I know there are a bunch of open source parts that are built in it that are available on clockwork’s github https://github.com/clockworkpi/ but it would be nice to have a guide on how to build it (enabling easier customization?) and the open source approach would be complete. (we could even go as far as to aim for https://reproducible-builds.org/ but that’s a whole other topic and is a very difficult thing to do).

I think having the build procedure and tools would make it also easier for people trying to setup a dev environment and an emulation environment (virtualbox, qemu, etc).

I’d also be interested in pointers if some of the work is being upstreamed to different projects the clockworkOS is using : the linux kernel (cf https://github.com/clockworkpi/Kernel ), and maybe getting the arduino compatible device upstream (https://github.com/clockworkpi/Keypad - as far as I see in lsusb it says “Test USB device”), etc.

Thanks in advance, and hope that clockworkOS will stay and expand as hackable and open also on the software side.
