crops-generator is a Kconfig and python3 Kconfiglib tool to make creating derivative CROPS containers easier. Because it’s Kconfig based, extending it is trivial. Which Linux distribution and version do you want to base your image on? Do you need additional packages installed in your container image? Do you need to install an external toolchain? Do you need to add git-repo or kas to your container image? These are all customizations that do not belong in the base CROPS containers, but are easy to add with crops-generator. For SDK vendors, you can also ship configuration for crops-generator to your customers and allow them to further modify their build container images.
