What is it about Arch and Lispers? 

In surfing through all the various Lisp sites, I have noticed a preponderance of Arch being used as a sourcecode control system. This percentage of Arch users seems very high in the Lisp user base versus the rest of the open source world, which seems predominately CVS. So, my question is, why?

I would suspect that a vast majority of Lispers also use Emacs vs. vi because of the way Emacs works well with Lisp source code (not to offend the vi Lispers out there; I know people use vi on Lisp, too). At least those not using one of the commercial products with an IDE editor, etc. That correlation I can understand.

If you know, feel free to drop me a line.
