== DESCRIPTION
-Crate is a developer tool to help build custom distributions of ruby.
+Crate is a developer tool to help package up your application as a custom static
+build of the ruby interpreter plus all dependedent binary extensions. All the
+pure ruby code (the ruby application, the ruby stdlib, etc ) is packed into one
+or more SQLite databases.
-== INSTALL
-
-gems:
-gem install configuration logging archive-tar-minitar progressbar amalgalite
-rake dist:install
+The final distributable pieces are a single executable and a few SQLite
+databases which can be then wrapped up appropriately as an OS X App; a self
+extracting executable for Windows; a shar archive, rpm or tarball for Unixes.
