However, in its current state each version of lipck (git tag/commit) is designed
for a specific Ubuntu version. While the version/source image can be configured
freely, patches and static files (i.e. those in the contrib directory) are
not versionized and do only apply to a single Ubuntu image.
Originally, lipck was (or still is) created to remaster install images for
linux install fests organized by members of the Open-Source working group of
linux install fests organized by members of the Open Source Arbeitskreis of
the Fachschaft 1/1 Mathematik, Physik, Informatik of the RWTH Aachen University.
It is published in hope that it will be useful for someone else as well.
