I’m well aware that vanilla Arch isn’t Manjaro. None the less I can’t help being intrigued by one idea: Considering some of the great tools Manjaro created for Arch, why wouldn’t Arch choose to port some of them back and include those in its repository? I know they were originally created for Manjaro, yet if they’re so good why not mainstream them in Arch so more users can benefit? It could also mean those tools getting even more attention and being even better developed!
I’m kinda asking this question with one particular tool in mind: Pamac. It’s literally a GUI version of Pacman, something vanilla Arch users could fully enjoy having the possibility to use! I looked this up and Pamac for vanilla Arch seems to exist but only in the AUR repository. Would this be something they may consider including officially in the core Arch repos?
Beyond that the one other thing I wonder about are parts of the Manjaro Settings Manager… rebranded as Arch Settings Manager in this case. The kernel manager and driver installer in particular are pretty neat; Even experienced people like vanilla Arch users could find themselves making use of those for system management as optional helpers.
