Hello, i would like to build a custom turnkey software appliance. There is a Turnkey Core Distribution available with the promising description "Common Base for All Appliances" is there any howto or whitepaper available on how to build a custom distribution based on Turnkey core?

Updated the community development section

Hello Wolf,

Glad to have you on board! Since the release of Core there seems to be an increased interest in building custom TurnKey Linux appliances. We are really excited about that and would like to encourage that kind of community involvement as much as possible.

I've updated the community development section of our website with more information on how this can be accomplished.

Hope this helps!

Customization Mechanism (TKLPatch)

We have just released TKLPatch, which would be of interest to anyone wanting to customize a current appliance, or creating a new one.
