DO Ideas 2

Add the Gentoo, Arch Linux, and NixOS Distrobutions.

It would be nice if the Gentoo, Arch Linux, and NixOS distributions were available as DO server distros. Gentoo is a source release, meaning it builds packages locally; Arch Linux is a rolling release, meaning that it is an "install once, update anytime" distribution; and NixOS is the state-of-the-art OS in system configuration.

    Hi Ethin, Each of these distros already have individual requests opened for them. As we use UserVoice to help gauge demand, it works best when requests are for single, discrete features. So I'm going to go ahead and close this in order to free up your votes. Please vote on each of the individual requests to show your support.
