Resolution 2019-05-02.jrk.2: Arch Linux 32 as associated project

This resolution was adopted by the Board of Directors of SPI at their meeting of June 10, 2019.


  1. Arch Linux 32 is a substantial and significant Free Software project.

  2. The Arch Linux 32 developers would like SPI's support and assistance, including taking donations.


  1. Arch Linux 32 is formally invited to become an SPI Associated Project, according to the SPI Framework for Associated Projects, SPI Resolution 1998-11-16.iwj.1-amended-2004-08-10.iwj.1, a copy of which can be found at

  2. Erich Eckner is recognized by SPI as the authoritative decision maker and SPI liaison for Arch Linux 32. Successors will be appointed by the outgoing SPI liaison, or if the current SPI liaison is unavailable or refuses to appoint a successor, by a simple majority vote by the current master key holders of Arch Linux 32.

  3. If the last known SPI liaison for Arch Linux 32 is missing in action, and no new SPI liaison is appointed for two consecutive years the associated project is deemed defunct.

In such a circumstance, the SPI Board will, in its good-faith discretion, proceed as follows: the Board will identify one or more other SPI associated projects or 501(c)(3) charities which can accept the project's assets and use them for a similar purpose, and transfer the assets to the identified destination or destinations as feasible. Assets for which no such transfer can be arranged within a reasonable time will become part of the SPI general fund.

  1. This invitation will lapse, if not accepted, 60 days after it is approved by the SPI Board.
