Upgraded to 3.11 with feature flag. Looking good for Ubuntu packages. It's cool to see this feature live now. I'm still at the beginning of the Fleet rollout, but I know that most Linux users in my company are using Arch Linux (including me). The osquery package that is available in the default Arch Linux repo contains a patch to also report packages installed on Arch as proposed in https://github.com/osquery/osquery/issues/6477 - what would be the best way to get Arch software reporting in fleet as well? PR to adjust the query or would you prefer to get this in a official osquery release 1st?

Hi Martin! First off, thanks for your swift upgrade. Just for clarity, Arch Linux software is not supported with the current software inventory, correct? If you think you can write a quick PR to get Arch software reporting, we would love to check it out.

That's right. The Arch Linux package table is only available in osquery when installed on Arch Linux. Fleet does not query this table.

Hey @Martin Pöhlmann, I'm not on the Fleet team but do you know the contributor who made that patch for Arch Linux? If so, you should encourage them to submit a full patch. I will definitely be a supporter of that getting merged into Osquery core!

I don't know him in person, but it's the same one who created the issue in osquery (https://github.com/osquery/osquery/issues/6477). He also maintains the official archlinux osquery package. I think he's also here on slack, @Anatol Pomazau

I'm also interested in getting this further (independently of fleet integration) and might also get some time to work on this if needed.

Ok cool, if you get a PR up flag me down and I'll definitely help test it and do my best to raise it to the core team. I think it would be a great addition.

Sounds good. As soon I find a few hours I'll continue. If in the meantime @Anatol Pomazau chimes in, it's also okay for me 😉
