Archlinux just finished migration to git! The future is bright and glorious. Posted on May 21, 2023 by Anonymous Archlinux just finished migration to git! The future is bright and glorious.
does archinstall have this feature added in
or i have to wait
why should i care
If you're not responsible for maintaining packages, there's no reason to care
The community repo was previously managed by AUR maintainers rather than distro maintainers, so probably good.
This is something its detractors made up. The only nominally bleeding-edge distros are Tumbleweed and Rawhide. Arch only packages release versions of software, so you're on the same cadence as Windows and Mac users. That only seems bleeding-edge to you because the norm on Linux is to use packages that are 2-4 years out of date. lmao.
Is this some kind of ad or am I supposed to be impressed?
what am i supposed to feel?
Finally I can updoot! I spent the last two days without updoots and felt I was going crazy!
Hoooolly shhiiit it's happening! Let's fucking goooo archbros

Arch isn't bleeding edge
Arch's packaging process is pretty backwards amusingly despite them being big on reproducible builds, but oh well it's not like it matters to users.
opensuse is probably more bleeding edge than arch
Weren't they publicly shamed for being like a year behind on glibc updates?
>some neckbeard in the depth of some LULZ thread cried about it
oh no, anyway
>using an outdated toolchain is something only LULZ neckbeards care about
They never quite got a year behind, it was finally fixed after about 11 months. Still ahead of Debian and Ubuntu but behind Fedora at the time. Toolchains are hard and there was a maintainer transition. Hopefully moving the issue tracker to GitLab with PRs and everything will make that kind of thing impossible.
They've had several toolchain updates since then that went just fine in and in a timely manner.
Rolling release != bleeding edge
cool, now they should focus on making pacman on par with other package managers when it comes to security
>making pacman on par with other package managers when it comes to security
pacman is the best and fastest linux package manager. By far.
do any mirrors actually have the new repos yet?
The mirrors shouldn't have to do anything. The only difference is that community is no longer a thing so you have to get rid of that in your config.
If you go to any of the mirrors you will see that none of them have the new split testing repos yet. They're just updating the old ones. Clearly something requires manual intervention and nobody's doing it on a Sunday.
Oh my bad I forgot about that split. Yeah they would have to update their rsync to the new directories in that case.
artixcels, what does this mean for us?
Nothing. Galaxy will get merged into world but that's it.
