Building the BitCurator distro (for developers)

The BitCurator GitHub organization currently includes two core repositories required to build the BitCurator environment:

The BitCurator environment is a customized respin of Ubuntu. Aside from the initial Ubuntu install, a small number of manual tweaks, and executing the respin tool, the process is fully automated by SaltStack. To get started building and testing a new release, follow the link to bitcurator-distro-salt above.
