Discussion of Secondary Arches
- Blizzard proposed ARM as a secondary Fedora architecture
- Community run under FESCo following the same processes as other secondary arches
- Additional discussion around whether PPC should remain a primary architecture
- It is valuable to Fedora as a whole to have both big and small endian architectures in active use and testing.
- PPC will remain a primary architecture until:
1. secondary arch process is finalized 1. there are no other secondary architectures
- Board approves and welcomes ARM as a secondary architecture
- Location with will be Raleigh, North Carolina
- Discussed pros and cons of two different dates: August 3rd to 5th or August 17th to 19th
Decision: Max will check on location for both dates by June 15th. This may help to determine which date it actually happens on. Presently leaning towards August 3rd to 5th, *but no decision has been made*.
