Some say it's a Ubuntu-based OS which, after seeing the repos list, I could agree with but others say it's an openSUSE mod.
The Chromium Projects wrote:Adding a New Package
Here's how you add a new package to Chromium OS:
1. Get your build working, so that you can create a debian package.
Note: Start with minimal code, so that your changes are easier to review and incorporate into Chromium OS.
2. Create a debian folder with control, changelog, and rules files. The control file contains the metadata about the package; the rules files describes rules for building the package. Look at other examples to see how to create these files.
3. Once you have your build system working, create a make_pkg.sh file in the base directory of your package. Look at other examples to see how to create this file.
Note: If your package is a third-party package, it must go into src/third_party and be accompanied by its license.
4. Create a README file that describes the purpose of the package. If your package is a third-party packaage, document any custom patches that have been applied.
5. Add any extra dependencies your package might need.
6. Modify build_platform_packages and edit the build_image.sh file, so that the build system will build your package.
Once you're done, make sure your changes to do not break the build system. Then create a changelist and get it reviewed (see Contributing Code for details).
