Openness and Freedom are missing

The ideals espoused in the v1.0 Openness and Freedom are missing from this version. These are principals of what Arch is and I believe it is a bug to omit them. What is this v2.0 for anyway? Is there some other place a discussion of this is taking place? --EnigmaCurry (talk) 00:09, 5 February 2013 (UTC)

The main author is a wiki admin and I guess it's his take on the Arch way. -- Karol (talk) 04:03, 5 February 2013 (UTC)
