Overall the new layout you proposed seems reasonable, however I'm
pretty sure that consensus was to not call it "Arch Linux" at all.
This is in order to remain in good standing with the GNU project.

Per a previous e-mail from RMS:

In this case, you have to choose to give this kind of respect
either to the developers of Arch GNU/Linux or to the GNU Project.
Respecting the former means joining them in disrespecting us.

I replied to RMS's email with essentially the wording that I included
in this version.  Unfortunately, he didn't reply directly to mine..


What about "Arch (the GNU/Linux distribution)"?

It avoids endorsing the error, so it is ok.

I think that the version I submitted also avoids endorsing the error.
Perhaps change the heading to just "Arch" and leave "Arch Linux" for
in the body?

We are deciding by consensus that is good call it "Arch (the GNU/Linux distribution)", not "Arch Linux". Even Richard Stallman is agree about it, please no more fighting between us, we are part from the same distribution and community.
