The “IOW“ part does not really make sense to me.
I mean that currently the changes to those packages are very invasive
and also involve substantial non-upstream patchsets.
I want those patchsets to go upstream first, and for the other
differences in the spec file to be substantially reduced or eliminated.
Do you plan to have a special branch in dist-git of these packages?
The details aren't worked out, but I imagine completely separate spec
files + patches for those packages, stored outside Fedora, and
infrequently rebased against Rawhide. A private-* branch in Fedora
dist-git would also work, but I understand that Fedora doesn't want to
give any "resources" to this architecture at the moment.
