The program called genesis in Generations Linux is the installer. It is under development.

What I can share is that it uses an XML file which specifies a depot also known as catalog of catalogs, here is an example:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-16"?>
<depot distribution="Generations Linux" release="3.1">
 <signature file="softcraft.asc">gpg-pubkey-1ee4a61b-44e3e8d7</signature>
