It not based on lxlauncher, it was written from scratch by Skeezix.I have no Pandora, so I don't know how Minimenu works. But on screenshots it looks a lot like lxlauncher, which is available as a Debian package.
A lot of the Pyra Hardware config is done in the Device Tree Binary file (.dtb), not in the kernel config. This file is provided in the kernel package aTc bundles. The source for this binary is available in the kernel sources.That's all a matter of the kernel config, right? (I've never really been into building custom kernels.) So it should all come with the kernel.
If there are any config files needed, I'd expect to find them all in a Debian package or a collection thereof.
Actually that is how it is currently, upgrading the kernel is just an apt-get install away. Booting a different kernel is just a matter of selecting a different one from default in a u-boot menu. Although currently it's only done via a serial terminal, a graphical menu can be done.I believe the ultimate goal should be, that every single piece of the base system should be manageable by the Debian packaging system. I know that especially in the beginning that won't work for the kernel, but I think even this should be at least a long-term goal, which is why I asked for any mainlining plans.
