::Whilst it may be true that the `abuild` script used to convert APKBUILDs to .apk packages is ''based on'' `makepkg` (the script describes itself as a "light version of makepkg"), I do not think this justifies Alpine's place on this list — no parts of pacman (or libalpm(3)) are used in the packaging system and Alpine itself is compiled using Gentoo's portage system.

Artix Linux[10] has now changed its tag-line from "Your Arch, your init" to "Your GNU/Linux, your init", and so, is no longer in violation of the TrademarkPolicy. The entry has been added back. —This unsigned comment is by Drumal (talk) 07:13, 30 September 2017‎. Please sign your posts with ~~~~!
