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.

The aports tree is a set of files and folders that contains scripts needed to build/create a package.
This package (called 'apk') can then be installed and used by Alpine.
