Hi WaLong Cho!

When can we see tinybox on tizen.org or github? Can you provide any URL so
we could look at it?

There is a need for GLPv3-free image and up till now it was decided to use
toybox as already available. If we are about to change decision we would
need to look at tinybox to see how complete its implementation is.

Also, toybox is already available on tizen.org.

@Dominique, Xavier - do we have any time constrains on making a *box tool
available with security options?

Best Regards,

Hi all,

I'd like to introduce new toolbox like tool. That is named as *tinybox*.
We have plan to open that on github. That is not under IP verification.
I think that will be soon opened.

*tinybox* is using Apache license.

Many of coreutils commands were already implemented. And many of others
are implementing now.

*tinybox* was started to be used on Tizen.(so at the first time, that
has name like tizenbox.) But there is no Tizen feature and should be.

I hope to move security-related functionalities to *tinybox*.
