With the migration work complete, Arch Linux packages are now available through GitLab hosted at .

This migration also marks the end of the Subversion (SVN) access point for Arch Linux projects, and their SVN archives will disappear with the shutdown of the svn2git mirror.

Information about Archlinux

Arch Linux is an independently developed, i686-optimized Linux distribution aimed at advanced Linux users.

 It uses the self-developed package manager pacman to provide updates for the latest application software and complete dependency maintenance. 

Arch can be installed from a CD image or from an FTP server, and it operates as a continuously evolving, dynamic system. 

The default installation provides a solid foundation, and the user can then perform a customized installation. 

In addition, Arch Build System (ABS) can support easy creation of new packages, modify the configuration of original packages, and share these packages with others through Arch Linux User Repository.
