Well, it's possible. Speaking selfishly (as the one who's likely going
to wind up doing it), it involves a bit more work than the other
options. It would be included in the 'Summary' pages, I don't know if
that's a good or a bad thing.
Yeah I forget that this isn't just a single static page, but there's
more going on with it. OK so how about doing 1 and then punt? i.e.
just wait to see who shows up for the testing party, and then decide
exactly what this i686 variant page would look like? Maybe it's a
mirror in functionality to the main one; or maybe it can just be a
There are quite a few things in the matrix that are considered
"likely" working for one arch if it works on the other. Whoever's
testing may end up wanting to chop up that page into something smaller
anyway, depending on their resources. If that's plausible, all the
more reason for you to not spend a lot of time on this until there's
less uncertainty. There's a good chance it'll mostly be tested in VMs
running on 64-bit hardware.
