what does “linux distribution” mean?

does it imply inclusion of a linux kernel?

if I give you a container image, with a bunch of programs compiled to run on linux but with no kernel, is that still a linux distribution?


@iliana I would say that a Linux distribution implies you are distributing (the) Linux (kernel). But when I start talking about definitions I feel Wittgenstein breathing down my neck.
