22 I would like to propose, once again, that the council vote on the
23 following items:
24
25 1. The council approves all architectures that are maintained as stable
26 architectures.
27 - e.g. alpha, amd64, arm, arm64, ia64, ppc, ppc64, and x86.
28
29 Conversely, the council also may remove/drop such architectures as
30 needed (c.f. item 2).
31
32 2. The council approves that all stable architectures are subsequently
33 determined to be security supported. Thus, an architecture may not be
34 stable and *not* security supported. This disparity has implications in
35 processes and timeliness of actions taken to mitigate vulnerabilities
36 reported.
37 - e.g. amd64 is approved as stable arch and thus is security supported.
38 - e.g. arm is dropped as a stable arch thus is no longer security supported.
39
40 Overall, both of these items will provide a much clearer understanding
41 of how security is able to proceed with mitigating vulnerabilities in
42 the tree, how users view and understand what architectures are stable
43 and security supported, and allow the security team and maintainers a
44 clearer/cleaner process to follow.
45
46 Standing by to answer RFI's.
