Hey everyone,

Those of you that follow projects.archlinux.org have probably already
noticed a little project called archiso. Dan and I have been hacking at
them quite a bit lately, and I think it's time to share :)

Basically it's a set of scripts that can be used to generate Arch
liveCD's. They're very, very, (did I say very?) simple. Both by design
and to use. They are also very powerful. Pretty much any liveCD system
you could imagine can be molded out of them with little effort. They're
lightweight, and they're designed to use plain old arch packages to form
the system.

Anyhow, we've beat the crap out of them as best we know how, and we ran
out of ways to break them. Now we're asking you to do the same.

If you want to give the scripts a whirl, grab them out of the git
repo[1] and take a look. It's pretty straightforward.

If you don't really care about the scripts, but are curious about what
you can make with them, I've generated a few sample ISOs [2] that may
interest you. (actually these isos may appear in a little bit, i'm still
generating them)

Let me know what you think, and of course, patches welcome ;)
