we need a blacklist of licences that are not allowing distribution. 
where the licence is custom, it should be blacklisted like this i 


then the script should be taking this into account. 

this additional images (ISOs)... are they going to be just the dump of 
all pkgs currently in repos? or is there going to be a selection? 
what criteria? what is on the additional images besides the 
repositor{y,ies} and a live minimal arch system (archie?) with pacman 
to be able to install the pkgs from the repo on a target /root 
filesystem directly? or is even this not needed and we expect the 
users to use their running system pacman?
