Arch repositories for i586

I’m not sure exactly how or when I’ll get a chance to try this, but I found this repository this morning on the Arch forums and I desperately want to see how well it works.

I’ve been hunting for a way to put Arch on an i586 that doesn’t involve a full system recompilation and that might just be the ticket. My plan right now is to shuffle between the old Lowarch ISO from two years ago, which is still downloadable from here, add that repository and see what happens.

If the test machine doesn’t erupt in a pillar of fire, I’ll call it a success. If you get a chance before me, let me know how it goes.
