We're tracking build failures as bugs now? Really??
Tracking build failures is probably overkill as long as not all packages
are expected to build on ARM. Tracking patches in Bugzilla that fix
build failures is a good idea, though. This allows maintainers to
inspect patches and apply them.
I guess once Fedora-ARM is completely working, all non-working packages
should be tracked as mentioned in the wiki:
