I would try it, but I don't know how, since Fedora uses GRUB2. Should I
install ArchLinux in a VM or is there a way to try it with Fedora? Is
there any documentation for how to install it and how to use it?
I was not planning on doing that until I had some feedback on how big of
scope this could turn out to be but I see if I cant setup a minimal test
image you can build locally with mkosi and write some documentation.
It's almost 23:00 here so it wont be until tomorrow.
