Distro = Distribution.

So, specifically, an archive or bundle or git master repo SHA stamp of
specific versions of libraries known to work well together.

In other words, a tarball, a ZIP archive etc, though you don't actually
need that, a git clone of a specific tag in a git master repo is sufficient.
