I'd really appreciate having an ARM machine available. I've had a few
bugs that occur only on ARM. Is there any ETA for their availability?

Not at the moment. I need to schedule multiple accesses to the data centre due to COVID-19 rules of 4 hour work windows and other controls. Once that I will need to then spend several days getting each one of these working. 
- a bastion server working
- a dns/dhcp server working on the local network
- get the mgmt consoles working
- get the serial server working
- find out what each arm box thinks it is doing
- get them installed with something newer than F30
- get their ips working so main infra can get them working
- get main infra to Ansible the systems.

several of these can be done 'remotely' but a lot of them require me to go in and sit on a keyboard/video/mouse on a box then work with networking and other groups to iron out issues. It is also a 'smooge only' thing on a lot of them because I am the only one in the near vicinity of these boxes. 

I am currently on extended vacation because I didn't get any time off since January to work on the move from PHX2 to IAD2.. however when that is done, and I have gotten a task list of 'what is considered higher priority' then we can get this project done.
