I've known alpine linux for several years but, even though I've done

myself a linux expert.
This time I wanted to try it again more seriously (in my free time)
and so here I am.
Usually I don't write a letter of introduction, but since I wanted to
say some things not strictly related to the distribution, I took the

choice but: the forum is not reachable
and the #alpine-linux on freenode is empty.
3)In the past I have been a user of tinycore linux, a nice distro,
similar on some things to alpine (small size, bootable in ram,
modular). In the end I abandoned it because there was no standard
format of autamoatization of package building (like arch).

each major version change (tinycore is not rolling release) you had to

I don't think that if I have to stay on alpine I'll be able to create
my packages in a short time, but I'd like to know if you have a
standard script format and an automated building procedure for

Now I write another message, because I have a graphic problem but I
want to talk about it separately
