We’re looking at some ideas for making system update (i.e. rootfs) generation easier for Debian family distributions (where Mender uses mender-convert).
Right now the golden image workflow is being used, however it has quite a bit of steps for moving storage (e.g. SD cards) around, dumping images, etc.
If you’re interested in giving your feedback on a call to help improve Mender in this area, please let me know (DM me or email email@example.com). We offer a $50 Amazon gift card as a small token of appreciation for your time.
