I understand there are benefits to Manjaro having it's own tools but it seems that compatibility with Arch is on the fall, e.g excerpt taken from the wiki:
All of these manjaro-tools packages are replacements for devtools and manjaroiso .
Where replacement apparently means dropping the later package(s)?, I don't see manjaroiso in the repos and devtools hasn't been updated since early last year
Some time ago I was hoping to mkarchroot, arch-nspawn and arch-chroot into it to mess around but apparently I've gotten an error message along the lines of.. not the same OS
Was also hoping to install Arch systems from a Manjaro live boot.
Right about when I found out there's mkmanjaroroot, manjaro-nspawn equivalents in devtools I also found out about manjaro-tools-pkg which conflicts with devtools and makes this look less redundant:
mkchroot, systemd-nspawn(not from manjaro-tools but is this what should be used)?, manjaro-chroot
This is leaner but is Manjaro now making it's own science in OS tools(which is fine just not very collaborative if collaborative users have to switch OS's and learn something somewhat different for the lack of cross-compatible tools) or are they interchangeable in any way?
What does this even mean(preparing to ditch pacman for pamac?):
pacstrap --> basestrap
What's the direction we're going in regarding this and this fairly new Arch Collaboration?
Also this was fun, the best result of looking up manjaro-tools and devtools via the search:
