Talk:Offline installation

Follows my thoughts about the Template:Accuracy at the head of the article:

Quoting Install from existing Linux#Using a chroot environment,

the bootstrap environment is really barebones (no nano, no ping, no cryptsetup, no lvm). Therefore, we need to set up pacman in order to download the rest of the base and, if needed, base-devel.

Which defeats an offline installation. In addition, since we have a sufficient mean, namely archiso, why not exploit the most of it, and avoid more requirements?
