asking information about the ArchBang doesn't fit in the policy that 
Oliver pointed. That is my opinion.

if ArchBang have their own repo with custom packages but if somebody is 
asking for help that involves their installation procedure, they should 
be redirected to ArchBang forum. They have their own bugtracker too and 
all ArchBug should be reported there.
