Git-based systems[edit]


Don't you too hate the emptiness in file:/usr/share/src/ of 2017 open-source misnomed distros?
Or their not letting you gdb each process down to the deepest library printf?
Or their maximal tarball bloat for minimal changes?
PS: A more ideal year 2017 would have seen us start this chapter with an eloquent "apt install && git clone && cd Git && git pull && emacs Systems && git checkin . && git commit && git push" lookalike idiom!

Goal: running system(s) entirely made of Git with many a git submodule or git subtree
