Not so much. It just means that builds on the primary arches won't fail if
the build fails on a secondary arch, so it will be up to the community built

secondary arch group will also be responsible for spinning their release, but
the tools we provide make that very easy.

Fedora that I've seen. It has been mostly up to our internal engineers to
fix things on PPC when they go wrong.
