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.
