So I have been trying to read up on all the talk here on the switch (which is a lot seeing as I am late to the party and the amount of flaming going on from both sides). From what I have read it seems that what I need to do is:
0: switch to Unstable and then wait a week or two without updating (which seems counterproductive and is a big jump from stable).
1: edit pacman repo list to add Artix core and extra, deactivate Manjaro core repo, keep Manjaro extra but behind Artix extra in priority.
2: remove most Manjaro specific packages (but possibly not msm and mhwd?)
3: run a full update.
(4: multilib is not decided upon what will happen, maybe I can keep it, maybe not.)
Can one of the people who have had a successful migration (or preferably @artoo himself) confirm this or point out any mistakes I have made? Some of the advice I have seen seems contradictory and I am aware that the best course may have changed since people started talking about this. I really would prefer not to break my system too much.
Alternatively, should I just stick with Manjaro OpenRC until it is officially discontinued and there has been time for all of this to settle and the best course to be determined?
