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 it is a collection of software distributed together that runs on a Linux kernel. Kernel batteries may or may not be included
