I ran into a problem where I couldn't stage my image (it was trying to cp /boot/vmlinuz-linux but there is no linux in base anymore).

Here is a list of packages that used to be in base and are not in the new base:

cryptsetup
device-mapper
dhcpcd
diffutils
e2fsprogs
inetutils
jfsutils
less
linux
linux-firmware
logrotate
lvm2
man-db
man-pages
mdadm
nano
netctl
perl
reiserfsprogs
s-nail
sysfsutils
texinfo
usbutils
vi
which
xfsprogs

I added them to my darch-recipe here.

I'm just making this issue to check if you'd rather have these packages back in godarch/arch or just make people install them in their own recipes.
