"paldo is a Upkg driven GNU/Linux distribution. It's
kind of a mix of a source and a binary distribution. Even though it
builds packages like a source distribution it provides binary
"paldo stands for "pure adaptable linux distribution" and we try
to accomplish this in every package. paldo comes with very few
patches against its packages. We have virtually no local changes,
means every patch is one which will go upstream anyway (e.g.
compile fixes) or one needed by the LFS build system to enable us
to boostrap correctly. It's very easy to make changes to the
distro. You can change every package by providing a local version
of the sources and specifications you've changed. You can even
configure your system automatically through local differencial
repositories. The whole distribution is very flexible because it's
built on top of Upkg.
"paldo wants to be a distribution according to the "just-works"
principle. It tries to configure automatically as much as possible
without user intervention. paldo is task-oriented, means, that we
won't provide several programs to do one and the same task, we will
select the program which we think does this task best, and include
it into paldo. paldo aims to support cutting-edge technologies. It
is pure NPTL based (no linuxthreads support) and therefore does not
work with a Linux kernel older than 2.6.x."
