karaf-minimal is just a smaller distro then the normal karaf. It is
released for each version of karaf. I guess Guillaume pointed you to this
as an example of how to create your own custom distro.

There is no support to start karaf with a target platform. In practice
debugging karaf distributions works quite well though.
You simply start karaf with "karaf debug". Then go to the project you want
to debug in eclipse and start a remote debugging session for it with port

This works very well for pure maven projects. I think it is not very well
suited for tycho based projects.
