Sorry guys, Arch originated in British Columbia, Canada, and as a 
contribution against the massive extinction of languages in this world, 
our distro is going to adopt one of the five Wakashan languages still 
spoken on the Vancouver Island:
Vote is open to choose any one of these languages as our new official 


Each of these has ca. 200 active speakers left [*]. Once the vote is 
settled, a dozen speakers of the chosen languages will be hired to  
train our Arch developers.

A linguistic summer camp on Vancouver Island is also planned for next 
summer, so all of us can become proficient in the language.
