It is my understanding that `archlinux/base`" <> is Arch Linux's official Docker image.
It is also my understanding that `archlinux/base` is built from <>.

There is very little information on the Docker Hub page, and I think that more information should be added. Questions that I, as a user, think should be answered on the Docker Hub page:

- Is this the official image of Arch Linux?
- Where can I review the Dockerfile (and associated assets) that created this? (The GitHub page links to the Docker Hub page, but not the other way around)

Some notes about answering those:

- Some images (like `fedora` <>) are marked "official". It would be nice if `archlinux/base` were to be marked official, especially given the "competing" `base/archlinux` image that also shows up in search.
- Some images (like `jwilder/nginx-proxy` <>) have a "Dockerfile" tab where you can view the Dockerfile right there in-browser.
- Some images (like `jwilder/nginx-proxy` <>) have a "Source Repository" infobox on the right with a link to the Git repository.

I'm not terribly familiar with authoring to Docker Hub, so I'm not sure what's required to make use of any of those 3 features.
This task depends upon
