[[!meta title="Release Series 1 Goal: Installation Bootstrap Tool"]]
-A goal for [[release_1.0|dev/releases/1]] is an installation bootstrap tool.
-A tool similar to [debootstrap][debootstrap] of Debian needs to be written to
-bootstrap the installation of a basic system. It can be used for
-[[building_packages|dev/todo/package-cross-building-tool]] or installing the
-operating system on hardware targets.
-Basically, the tool would fetch from the package archive the index of packages,
-determine which packages need to be installed, download each package, and unpack
-each package. Since the package manager may not be available, the tool must
-handle dependency resolution and package unpacking on its own.
-If written portably (i.e. in conformance with POSIX.1), this tool could be used
-to make base system images on any UNIX-like operating system with
-implementations of the `tar` and `chroot` programs. Additionally, the package
-building tool can build packages for this distribution inside an isolated
-environment made using this installation tool. Therefore, these tools can be
-thought of as a "Software Development Kit" ("SDK") for the distribution, usable
-on any capable development system.
-Ideas and code may be borrowed from debootstrap and old versions of ipkg (the
-predecessor to opkg, originally written in UNIX shell command language).
-Development has begun on [opkbootstrap][opkbootstrap]. It currently downloads
-old ipkg-style source lists, finds essential packages, and unpacks packages. To
-do are downloading Debian pool-style source lists, resolving dependencies,
-downloading packages, setting up an isolated environment ("chroot"), and running
-maintainer scripts.
