Arya is derived from "Linux From Scratch" and allows you to build KDE from sources etc..

There clearly are more advanced build-from-source oriented systems, with guixSD and NixOS even offering reproducible builds.

Arya is much 'simpler' but worth working with if the 'super sophisticated' technologys fail and you want to go "back to the roots" and avoid certain complexities, which is legit often times..

It would make it easier for everyone if Arya was advertised in simple, concise, clear terms so we know what to expect and what only other distros offer at this stage. A 9 out of 10 score does not seem warranted given that guixSD is a 9 only.

Source based distro from India using "alps" a package manager with rather few features. Advertised as "platform to make distros". Documentation could be more succinct and straight to the point in pointing out differences to similar projects such as Arch-Linux.
