Project Goal

The goal of Zerocat Project Template is to provide you with a project
skeleton that you can use to set up a new Zerocat project like so:

* Copy this project content into your new, local project folder.

* Perform an initial [Git][] commit.

  (Note an initial commit cannot be accessed by a git rebase action.)

* Update all files in `doc/` to use your new project name and new
  project brief, if applicable.

* Update settings in `doc/Makefile`, e.g.: `PROJECT_TITLE`,

* Update this section with a new goal, related to free-design hardware

* Update [AUTHORS][].

* Get in contact with [Zerocat Team][] and ask them for setting up an
  empty git repository so that you can push.


All paths within this document are relative in respect to the original
location of this source file, which is located in the project’s `doc/`


If you are on GNU Guix System, create your environment:

        guix environment --pure -m ../guix/manifest.scm

Otherwise, check the manifest file and install the listed packages with
the package manager of your distro. Adapt package names as required.

Make Documentation

To build the documentation, type:

        make -C ../doc

To get a full list of available targets, type:

        make -C ../doc help


Once you have contributed, add yourself to [AUTHORS][].

### Documentation Files

In order to enrich this documentation:

* add more `*.md` markdown text files to `../doc/`
* maintain copyright footer within new files
* add more folders, images or other files

... and adapt `../doc/Makefile` to produce nice output.

In case more tools are needed, don't forget to update

### Shell Scripts

If you intend to write shell scripts, use this skeleton to make them
work for GNU Guix:


        # Re-exec if we are not using Bash or are using Bash in POSIX mode.
        if [ -z "$BASH" ] || [ "$BASH" = "/bin/sh" ]; then
          bash=`command -v bash`
          if [ -z "$bash" ]; then
            echo "Couldn't find Bash, sorry!"
            exit 1
            exec "$bash" "$0" "$@"

        # We're using Bash now.
        set -o errexit
        set -o nounset
        set -o pipefail

        # Your code goes here ...

### Code Files

This project may ship non-code, graphic sources, which cannot be
covered by the standard GNU General Public License. The license header
for code source files thus has been adapted accordingly, please use it
if you intend to write code:
