(Apologies - resending because I wasn't subscribed earlier)
I'm contacting you on behalf of the x86 SIG. Today FESCo approved our request to
continue to support Fedora on x86 hardware, provided that we do our part to keep things
I encourage you to reach out to us when things do come up. You can find us at
x86(a)lists.fedoraproject.org or on #fedora-x86. We will likewise try to be proactive in
tracking down and triaging x86-related issues as well as helping test and debug things.
One caveat that FESCo attached to our request is that if you, the kernel team are cleared
to treat i686 as any other secondary arch when you run into build issues. That is, you are
allowed to ExcludeArch i686 until these issues are resolved. We ask that you block
FE-ExcludeArch-x86 so that we can track these issues.
Additionally, FESCo would like us to establish a minimum level of hardware supported. We
are working on this list and will follow up with you once we have it completed. In the
interim, we did want to address a couple of concerns that were passed along by Stephen
* We have decided to drop support for PAE, so please feel free to disable it on the next
* We have decided to continue to support pre-SSE2 hardware for the time being
Please don't hesitate to contact us with any questions/comments/concerns.
