Yes, it would be possible to setup a Wiki to produce SVG Timeline. I would think you would need to limit the scope of data that could be entered to a relatively fixed format. This could then be rendered into a SVG image. I think it might be necessary to have a graphic editor input to move some of the parts of the timeline around. Parts of the technology required are already around, if someone (else) want to have a go.... - Oct 05 2006

From my research Arch is not based on Crux as Judd says.....

Arch Linux is descended from Crux. Judd once summarized the differences:

"I used Crux before starting Arch. Arch started out as Crux, pretty much. Then I wrote pacman and makepkg to replace my bash pseudo packaging scripts (I built Arch as an LFS system to begin). So the two are completely separate distros, but technically, they're almost the same. We have dependency support (officially) for example, although Crux has a community that provides other features. CLC's prt-get will do rudimentary dependency logic. Crux gets to ignore lots of problems we have too, since it's a very minimalistic package set, basically what Per uses and nothing else."
