I haven't tested this yet, however I am very curious to see how
security patches from Debian are integrated into Arch.
>From its on-line documentation and plans Hyperbola looks like a solid
start and this is an exemplary submission. I sincerely hope it passes
the review and most importantly the distribution thrives. Its a great
addition not only to 100% free/libre distros, but also to the Init
Freedom family of distros. Thanks for taking this step.
