Comment 1 Ales Kozumplik 2012-08-09 04:24:31 EDT
Function like that is straightforward.

A more general and a more tricky thing would be returning a list of all architectures known to libsolv. I'll try to see if it's even feasible at the moment.

Yet more general would be a query accepting a NEVRA string with arbitrary parts removed. The query would then try to make a best guess. But that is out of scope now.
