To be able to create and contribute by creating your own alpine iso you need different components.

These components are listed below with a short description of what it's all about.
Each section has a link to a more detailed description or howto.

Build environment

The build environment makes it possible to create and modify alpine.
You need this to be able to build packages, iso's, and other files.
