I would like to use the Arch installation disk as a rescue disk for some of the PCs (test lab) I maintain, but I am missing the rsync tool. This is important since I am using machines with images on a server and restoring is most of the time done by7 syncing the PC and running grub again. Another practical tool would be partimage, but I guess this will not make it to the installation CD as long as it is in Community.
This task depends upon
