@hund @paranoidtechie Yeah, understandable argument, and hit the nail on the head with "I can't say that X is a better option than Y for you without knowing more than null." The keywords being "for you".

@paranoidtechie @hund I don't really see the point of using an Arch derivative because one of the advantages of Arch is that you learn about the system and these derivatives try to abstract much of that away. Installing Arch, if you closely follow the installation page, will be a breeze.

Also, with a derivative, you'll have a hard time getting support from Arch users (who are more numerous).

@paranoidtechie i think it must be leftover from a time when the installation was more difficult and docs more cryptic. If you follow the installation guide and reading the maintenance page then it's straightforward and simple. In my experience Ubuntu has been much less stable

@jbauer I see it's fixed now, and nice that you get to keep the categories on the home page too!

I notice too that the "Idle" time is based on when a repo was updated/uploaded by cgit. Wouldn't it to be better to be the time of last commit? I also get this behaviour with gitea, so I wonder why both gitea and cgit chose that

@jbauer cgit looks nice, I like the minimalism.

I noticed that the link in your post git.paritybit.ca/cgit-config needs to be git.paritybit.ca/Configuration. I wonder if it's possible to get the URL without that first category

@codewiz Haha yes exactly, so bizarre, I wish I could suppress it from popping up

@mcol More importantly, who comes up with these lame slogans for ASUS?
