I wrote a script to easily load zfs module on any archiso

Embeed that script in all archisos would be more comfortable.
This task depends upon

Reason for closing:  Won't implement
Additional comments about closing:  We are not allowed to distribute the ZFS modules in binary form, but users can create a custom ISO that includes them.

We are not including a script just to download and install shady thirdparty copyright-infringing binaries without validation.

Why is this even reported to the mirrorlist category.

@eolien: Thanks for the ticket, but this is not feasible.

As long as zfs is not available in the official repositories, this is nothing that we can officially support.
You are of course always most welcome to just build your own archiso profile with this included! :)
