Rebel Mountain is released

The [Baserock team], and [Codethink Limited] are proud to announce the first
public release of the Baserock system build infrastructure.  In this release,
[Rebel Mountain] we are pleased to be able to showcase the ability of Baserock
to build a system entirely from [Git repositories].

What is in Rebel Mountain

Rebel Mountain is a development release of Baserock.  It consists of a VM image
for `x86_64` for ease of development and that image contains everything
necessary to rebuild Baserock and to do basic development; including `git`,
`vim`, `ssh` etc.

How do I get started?

You can find a [quick start] guide on the [Baserock wiki] and also a short
guide on [developing with Baserock] which follows on from the quick start and
shows you how to get to the point of proving you can build Baserock within

>From that point on, your imagination is the limit.  We're working on several
things we hope to showcase later in the year and you can follow some of that
development in the [Git repositories] we publish.

How do I get in contact

The Baserock project has an [IRC channel] and [mailing list] for developers to
gather and discuss anything associated with Baserock.  It is strongly
recommended that you use the IRC and lists to contact the team for anything
associated with the public development of Baserock.  We also have a mailing
list for [announcements] which will be notified of any new releases or big
developments in Baserock.

Should you manage to find a bug in Baserock, we'd like to hear from you.  You
can find our [bug reporting guidelines] on the Baserock wiki and we will do our

We hope you enjoy experimenting with Baserock and look forward to hearing about
any cool things you do with our work.
