A friend of me is writing a pkgsystem that builds everything inside a
chroot and allows to create a full usable distribution, the pkgsystem
itself is not yet finished, but is pretty fast , written in C and
shellscript and I really think it is a good project. But actually it is
a single-man project. We can use this project as a tool to build the
base system.

Actually i'm happy with arch linux, but, i really miss a non-gnu linux
and minimalistic distribution. We should get a look on alternatives for
glibc (google one? uclibc? ..) but maybe the biggest rock we will face
it will be the X server...this is probably one of the interesting
projects to work on, but without keeping the X compatibility. (just as
an emulation layer) X11 is bloat. (as we have already discussed, we can
reuse the drivers of xorg) but designing a better and simpler API. But
this is probably a long topic to talk about, and we're of course not the
first ones to claim for an X11 replacement.
