This is a tool to create ext4 images. It requires no root access. The images can be build reproducibly.
The tool originated at Google (Android) and was stolen and patched by OpenWRT.

Thank you, that was manual editing.

This description doesn't expand on the summary. Could it be extended a bit to explain what problem this tool tries to solve? What are its key features? What makes these image files "reproducible" compared with images created with e.g. "dd"?
Btw, there is no documentation included either.
fwiw: doesnt build in mock on f22 because it is missing a buildrequires for zlib-devel
