I do not agree with this sentiment all, as well as I can't deny finding
your wording bewildering, because I think you actually are trying to say:
- You (Florian) want to abandon the i686 architecture.
- You (RH) want to play down the fact Fedora 28 is FUBARed on the PIII
and instead of fixing the issues you want to kill it.
I'm going to be as clear as I possibly can here. Red Hat, as a
company, is not going to put resources into fixing issues found on
Pentium III machines in Fedora, regardless of whether or not this
proposal passes. There is an x86 SIG who was tasked with that kind of
activity. The SIG should be fixing the issues it has responsibility
