If I may be allowed to say something here.....

I have been an Arch Linux user for about 1 year after migrating from Fedora to 
Linux From Scratch to now Arch.  I have now five machines (at home) currently 
running Arch from desktops to servers.  

In my side business I build subversion systems for small businesses.  I picked 
Arch to build these because of the rolling release model and the ABS system.
ABS is an excellent  system if I may say.  It is easier for me to build custom 
system for my side business.

I have in the whole time up to now have not voted upon a single package in any 
repo.  Although I have consumed packages from most of the repos,  AUR 

Voting for a package(s) is just not something that is of value to me as a 
user/consumer . 

So I can some what [ validate && understand ]  what Bob Finch is saying.
                             Sorry BASH made me do it :)
