Definition of common munki terms.

Catalog

A list of items available on the server, created by the makecatalogs tool. There can be multiple catalogs. Stored in the "catalogs" directory on the munki server.

Info File (or PkgInfo File)

A plist file that describes an installer item. Stored in the "pkgsinfo" directory on the munki server. Contains, among other things, a list of catalogs the installer item appears in. All installer items are automatically included in the "all" catalog.

Installer Item

Piece of software to be installed. May be be either a flat Apple package (.pkg), or a disk image (.dmg). Stored in the "pkgs" directory, or sub-directories there of, on the munki server. (Flat packages, introduced with OS X 10.5, are packages in the form of a single file. "Bundle-style" packages are actually directories, and must be encapsulated in a disk image. This has the effect of converting them into a single file, making them easier to download from a web server.)

Manifest

Describes what software a client should have installed or uninstalled. Stored in the "manifests" directory on the munki server.
