2018-04-21 -- A new primary mirror is up and running. Thanks!

2018-04-11 -- We have lost our primary mirror. We are in need of a new (and really stable) main mirror and multiple secondary mirrors located around the world. The primary mirror will have to rsync at regular intervals from our build server (every 30 minutes or so) and the secondary mirrors will in turn rsync from the primary mirror somewhat less frequently. Good bandwidth and at least 30 GBs of disk space (for now, we will need more in the future) is what we currently need. Please contact us if you can provide such a server or know someone who can.

2018-01-15 -- Our mailing lists and their archives are now hosted locally.

2017-11-24 -- We are back.

2017-11-13 -- Our Wiki is up!

2017-10-15 -- New LXQT ISO

Get it from our mirrors.

2017-09-12 -- New primary mirror

We are moving our package repos away from Sourceforge hosting, main reason being the restriction of colon characters (':') in filenames, which breaks the package database with epoch-versioned packages.
Edit your /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist with your favourite editor and make sure the following mirrors are on top: Server =$repo/os/$arch Server =$repo/os/$arch/ Server =$repo/os/$arch Server =$repo/os/$arch Server =$repo/os/$arch Then run: pacman -Syu to get the latest package databases and update.

2017-09-04 -- Our forum is up!

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.
