I think the real question is, for the developers of on devel-list, how
will longer builds for one arch than another affect your workflow? If
builds on two architectures start at the same time, but one takes longer
to finish than the other, how will that impact you? Right now you'll
still be able to see and use the results of the faster build before the
slower build completes, so are you materially impacted?
You are materially impacted. AutoQA won't run until the entire build is
complete. Updates cannot be prepared until the entire build is
complete. Buildroots won't be updated with the build results until the
entire build is complete. You won't know if your build /fails/ on the
arch until it's done, etc...
Having one arch significantly slower than the others absolutely creates
material impact upon developers.
