The kconfig-frontends package
This project aims at centralising the effort of keeping an up-to-date, out of the Linux source tree, packaging of the kconfig infrastructure, ready for use by third party projects.
This package provides the kconfig parser, as well as all the frontends, packaged using the traditional autotools, so the kconfig infrastructure is easy to deploy, either locally or system-wide.
This kconfig-frontends package does not aim at replacing the in-tree kconfig of the linux kernel. Any fix or feature must still be pushed upstream to the Linux tree before it appears in this package.
