Arch Linux is an independently developed, i686/x86-64 general purpose GNU/Linux distribution versatile enough to suit any role. Development focuses on simplicity, minimalism, and code elegance.
Arch Linux image built "from scratch" using shim and ducktape (https://github.com/dock0/ducktape) to bootstrap. This image has been stripped down to reduce size and is ready to be used to build upon as a base, see binhex/arch-base for example.
Create tarball of Arch Linux system from existing Arch Linux host/container
mkdir -p /ext && tar -cvpjf /ext/root.tar.bz2 --exclude=/ext --exclude=/etc/hosts --exclude=/etc/hostname --exclude=/etc/resolv.conf --exclude=/sys --one-file-system /
