2017-09-12 -- New primary mirror

We are moving away from Sourceforge hosting, main reason being the restriction of colon characters (':') in filenames, which breaks the package database with epoch-versioned packages. Our new primary mirror is active and serving. The rest of the mirrors will sync soon.
After updating artix-mirrorlist from [system-testing], users will need to rename /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist.pacnew to /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist and re-sync. # Enable [system-testing] in /etc/pacman.conf [system-testing] Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist Then run: pacman -Sy system-testing/artix-mirrorlist mv /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist.pacnew /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

2017-07-27 -- Return of the Jedi

After more than two years of maintaining repositories with OpenRC packages, the maintainers of separate but closely or loosely related projects (Arch-OpenRC, Manjaro-OpenRC) decided to join forces and create a project that would be systemd-free and unaffected from upstream changes and updates. That required what might technically be considered as a mini-fork. Three new repositories, [system], [world] and [galaxy] have been created which must be placed before the official Arch or Manjaro ones. This ensures that upstream (if this term can be used anymore) will never break the new setup.

The [arch-openrc] and [arch-nosystemd] repos will stop being updated. Manjaro-OpenRC will also stop being supported in a couple of months.

Existing OpenRC systems (whether arch-openrc or manjaro-openrc) can be converted to the new scheme with minimal effort. Older eudev-openrc ones might need some more tweaking, especially with concern to the desktop: consolekit2 is replaced by elogind. Those with vanilla systemd Arch or Manjaro must first migrate as described. Or, you can install a fresh Artix system.
