Hi all secondary architectures,
s390x is probably the most up-to-date secondary architecture in Fedora
and because there are still packages that fail to build I have started a
wiki page  to track that issues. It's meant as a temporary storage
before the failure is fully analysed and
- fix is applied to the package or
- proper bug report in Fedora or upstream is created or
- the set of supported architectures is updated.
Usually a short info about the cause of the failure is written here and
interested parties can take packages from this list and try to resolve
the failure. Right now the list is shared mainly between s390x and ppc,
but in my opinion it could be useful also for other arches, like in
sparc for endianity issues same as in ppc/s390x, etc.
And as you probably know it's a never ending fight because what could be
built yesterday can fail today :-(
Awesome idea. I've got a local list for ARM that I've been tracking as
been building F-14 to track changes for F-15. I've been considering the best
location to document all this and that's just sorted all that problem out.
I'll spend some time over the next week or so merging the information I have
for ARM into the page.
