Then you have to ask yourself, what defines a distribution. If you are going to
bring in ck, patch polkit, gnome, kde, xfce, etc, and introduce customizations
to lots of other packages, isn't it easier to start from gentoo or alpine and
maintain pacman for those distros? I am asking because you are going to
duplicate a fair share of official repos...
