Disk images that can be flashed onto the storage cards will be created as image files. They are a basic starting point that local deployments can add to once they received the boxes.
We will later allow customization of such lists, and add the ability to donate more modules for this use.

How to make a module
- Instructions from RACHEL. We use the same module design.
Allow the creation and customization of images via a web browser interface. The underlying site will take care of the putting together of the modules and allow download of a fully functional image ready to be written to an uSD card.
- Basically people click on radio buttons to select all the modules they want.
- Buttons at the top allow the sorting of modules based on tags attached to them
- As modules are selected the "total size" in the right upper hand corner increases to reflect the total size.
- When they have all the modules they want they click "create and download image" and up pops a screen to verify that these are what they want. Allows the user to adjust the sequence they appear in. And than when they confirm the image is created and delivered for download.
- People can also request a unit (both hardware, software, and data) to be created and delivered or upload new modules of their own creation. New modules will need a review process to verify copyright compatibility before going live.
