Hi Martin,

your list looks good, but I'd like to include the following items:

Configurational changes we deem necessary to make Arch Linux 32 running
and maintainable (e.g. we obviously have a separate mirror list and an
extra keyring). - Or did you mean to cover this in your 2nd point?

Recompiling older packages from Arch Linux and/or the Arch User
Repository. (There have been cases where a package was dropped on Arch
Linux, due to it's arcaneness - but x86 users still wanted it)

Aaron, can you give us formal approval on the list of deviations we're
allowed to make while still calling us "Arch Linux 32"?
