ProteanOS Development Kit 1.0.0 released


This is prokit, the ProteanOS Development Kit.

prokit can install a ProteanOS system, run a ProteanOS shell and other
commands, manage software packages in an installed ProteanOS system, and
build packages for ProteanOS (with build dependencies automatically
installed and removed).

prokit is similar in function to the debootstrap, pbuilder, and sbuild
programs of Debian and derivatives.
