    Want to get started yourself?

    1. Get the AA github to be able to build the iso yourself

    git clone https://github.com/arcolinuxiso/aa

    2. Create your own github project online and copy/paste our code in your project. Later you can make small changes when you start experimenting

    git clone https://github.com/arcolinuxiso/alis

    3. Change the github reference to yours in the build script in AA – around line 170 – see video

    4 . Change the content of alis.conf and alis-packages.conf and always push it to your github

    5. From time to time compare your content with the content of the ALIS project (see this article)
