I don't believe that is true. ARM is useful, I want it to be a
Primary arch, but I fail to see how your middle ground below of having
it be primary in the build system is going to somehow grow Fedora. I
believe there are concerns that it will place additional burden on
package maintainers (like ppc did before there was a real arch team
for it), and that those concerns are valid.
To expand on this a bit, how do you believe that merging ARM into the
build system is going to encourage growth in Fedora? What will it buy
you that you don't already have? At first glance, it gets you
slightly more timely builds. However, you've already proven that
timely builds isn't an issue at all by having ARM releases ready the
same day as primary. So please, elaborate on that in the proposal.
You have a lot of what you want listed, but not why.
