What you originally said - "I asked for a list of issues that warranted
ending 32 bit
support while it still worked, and got nothing"
There was nothing. Every single bug filed against it was in a package outside
of the default sets for every Spin, including the GNOME Spin.

What you originally said - ". When it came down to it, it was dropped while
Fedora still worked perfectly."
It does "work perfectly". That's not the same as saying anything is perfect,
it's a phrase for "Everything works". Every package that is installed in
single spin's default packages works. I confirmed this before I tried to join
the x86 SIG at the last minute, as it seemed to be the only way to keep x86
from getting dropped, but it wasn't enough. I pointed out that the issues
filed against x86 were mostly the same as those filed against ARMv7, and that
still didn't matter. Here we are, with x86 dropped while it still works, while
ARMv7 is still kicking around.
