==Arch-Stable/ArchRock==
 
 
 
In reference to the discussion in [http://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=41764&p=1 this] forum thread, the proposition has been put forth, initially by '''nagoola''', to provide a stable branch or snapshot of the Arch Linux distribution.
 
 
 
===Aims===
 
 
 
Arch-Stable(ArchRock) is aimed at servers, not at desktop/workstation machines. We will provide a repository that is as stable as possible and should never break an update.
 
 
 
===Concept===
 
 
 
We will provide a repository, which is only updated for security-updates during a release-cycle(6-12 Months). Feature updates will not be made during a release-cycle. Each release will be based on the official Arch-Repositories. We will only be providing the packages from [core] + some extra packages, which are often used by servers, like apache, php, mysql, etc.
 
 
 
===Definition===
 
 
 
In the context of the Arch-Stable Branch, 'stable' will mean: Packages should never crash during runtime, be bug-free and should never be broken by updates.
 
 
 
===Requirements===
 
 
 
====Staff====
 
 
 
# Project Leader - Delegate tasks and project direction.
 
# Packagers - Choosing and handling packages to add to the snapshot repository.
 
# Testers - Testing the stability of packages, logistics, and assistance.
 
# Repository - Will require a server.
 
# Programmers - Code necessary tools.
