 Mender Artifacts Library Mender is an open source over-the-air (OTA)
 software updater for embedded Linux devices. Mender comprises a client
 running at the embedded device, as well as a server that manages
 deployments across many devices.
 .
 This repository contains the artifacts library, which is used by the
 Mender client, command line interface, server and for build integration
 with the Yocto Project.
 .
 The artifacts library makes it easy to programmatically work with a
 Mender artifact, which is a file that can be recognized by its .mender
 suffix. Mender artifacts can contain binaries, metadata, checksums,
 signatures and scripts that are used during a deployment. The artifact
 format acts as a wrapper, and uses the tar format to bundle several
 files into one.
 .
 In its simplest form, an artifact contains just a rootfs image, along
 with its checksum, id and device type compatibility.
 .
 The artifacts library might also be useful for other updaters or
 purposes. We are always happy to see other uses of it!
 .
