I don't think Arch Linux is very advanced as a distro development hub. For instance, I checked out Archie, a LiveCD based on Arch, and it's pretty obsolete compared to the packages of Arch. I believe that Ubuntu can leverage the development borrowed from the community much better than Arch, because Ubuntu can and produce ISO CDs every day or so, including the LiveCD versions.
These distros that have nothing to lose do get some traction, but unless they go the extra mile and make their development straightforward, I think Ubuntu and Debian will appeal to many more distro builders and users.
thats because the script that was written to make archie doesn't work with udev (well work is being done). Even when it was new however it was still just a couple guys' pet project not a part of arch officially.
although a newer version is in the works
we also have a live cd creation tool called larch made by a user, its just that the devs and the community aren't particularly bent on evangelation so its not a really high priority.
is the forum for anything cool archers make
That seems more interesting, thanks.
Check our user contributions in the forum for Larch..a LiveCD creation program which allows custom arch Live CD.
Archie has limitations as a LiveCD for archlinux due to latest developments in arch system which haven't yet been addressed in archie.
Larch can probably circumvent the difficulty introduced by arch system changes in latest upgrades.
