Images, templates and the archiso

There has been some discussion about what "Community-provided support" and "Official support" meant. Usually, the only (feel free to correct me) supported way to install Arch Linux is to do it manually via the archiso or to use the bootstrap image. The main point is that you have to know your own system, so it is also supported if you e.g made an image for your system yourself.

As an active user in #archlinux, I know that these mysterious one-click installations/images are usually a blackbox and actually unsupported because you do not know your own setup, which also causes other problems.

However, there is the arch-boxes project which is official.

So in my opinion "official Arch Linux support" means that you can install Arch Linux in a supported way and "Community provided support" means that this provider only offers e.g these "one-click installation"/images which can potentially be horribly outdated.

I think it is a matter of perspective, supported by the provider or Arch Linux? I think we need to make that difference more clear Klausenbusk (talk) 01:22, 20 March 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
