This is a tracking bug for Change: ARM as primary Architecture
For more details, see: http://fedoraproject.org//wiki/Changes/ARM_as_Primary

Make ARM a primary architecture. Add armv7hl to the i686 and x86_64 as arches that we build and support. This will mean that all packages supported by the ARM architecture must build for ARM to be released. With the release of Fedora 19 we have deprecated support for software floating support (ARMv5tel sfp) so the only proposed addition to primary architectures is currently ARMv7 hardware floating point 32 bit support (ARMv7 hfp 32bit).

we are building arm as primary, everything is on target right now.

Isn't this the same as 1001330?

Hey Peter,

#1001329 is to make sure we cover ARM as Primary Arch in the Release Notes.

#1001230 (this one) is a work tracking ticket for someone to look over other Guides and see what needs to be updated. For example, with ARM as primary arch we can say in the ARM Getting Started Guide that booting Fedora might be platform-specific, but the installed system should behave the same on any platform. Someone working the docs-requests ticket would then either commit this info directly or create a bug against the ARM guide to get it done.

Petr is the owner of the Installation Guide; I believe he is using #1021599 to track representation of ARM in that guide. (It shouldn't block #1001329 though, I just fixed that.)  I don't know what his detailed plans are, but I'm sure we'll find you on the ARM list if anything comes up :)
