The point is that the official Arch Linux support channels (forums,
mailing lists, etc.) are only for official Arch projects. Any derivative
projects, be they custom installers, distro derivatives, or anything
else, need to run their own support channels.

If you have an issue with Talking Arch, bring it up with the Talking
Arch project maintainers. If they find your problem is actually with
something in Arch itself, then it would be approproate to raise the
issue on the official Arch support channels.
