7 So you would suggest to be like Ubuntu and say "we can not be bothered
8 to support any minority architectures anymore". This effectively
9 disbands all architecture teams except AMD64 and X86; it should be
10 subject to the same scrutiny (I suggest a council vote) as a GLEP or
11 EAPI change.
12 Personally I would like to hear stronger reasons then "it inconveniences
13 me when a bug I file is open longer then a month" to destroy the current
14 diversity of supported architectures (be it PowerPC or a prefix
15 installation on OS X).
