Fedora doesn't ship any ARM64 packages at all.  Not in primary koji, and not in the ARM secondary koji instance.  While aarch64 (aka ARM64) builds will migrate to the secondary ARM koji in the not distant future, it likely still won't actually be something "supported" by Fedora for quite some time.

Most of this is due to the fact that you cannot purchase an ARM64 machine.  That itself is due to the fact that silicon is unavailable to anyone outside of a select few ARM partners.

Ignoring the fact that Fedora doesn't even support this arch and that nobody can get hardware, if we did have support it would be on rawhide only at the moment.  The fixes for this went into 3.10-rc4, which means that rawhide (and F18 and F19) already have this covered entirely.
