10 years of Arch Linux - how do we celebrate?

Initial release was on March 11, 2002, so Arch is going to be 10 in a month and half.

How do we celebrate?
By bringing the whole wiki up to date? Donations drive? Or maybe by bringing the whole wiki up to date? ;P

I have no specific idea, but I definitely think we should celebrate on April 1st.

Re: 10 years of Arch Linux - how do we celebrate?

Nice idea.

Another one: ensure all packages in extra and community are signed. Currently, when I run Falconindy's signature-checking script (here) on core, extra and community and pipe it through "grep -o '[[:digit:]]*%'", I get (respectively):

100%
74%
52%

Also, as a tribute to Linus increasing the Linux version number to 3.0 to celebrate a 20th year anniversary, we should change the pacman version number to 5.0 tongue

We've just hit pacman 4 in [core] and got a standing ovation, let's stop at that.
What? These were riots and not applauses? Oh ...

Have a marketing campaign: "1010 years of arch linux"

There are 10 kinds of people in the world: those who understand binary, and those who don't

You know, I'm pretty sure that wouldn't be any different from what's happening now.....
