It's difficult to capture whole page in a screenshot, so I am provided a direct link to access my local running instance of developer portal https://816e2063.ngrok.io/architectures.html .  I will try to keep this link up for at least one day.

We can merge it to " Deploy and distribute" section if we rename it to something in order to fit information for different architectures. My main motive behind making Architectures section is to add not only information about secondary architectures but to have information for Primary and other arches too.

I would personally like to see it under the 'Deployment' section. 

Why? We currently have four sections:
1. Start a project - Creating a project from scratch or deciding which technology to use.
2. Tools - Tools that can support your development.
3. Languages & Databases - The technology we have in fedora.
4. Deployment - How to make it run and how to distribute it.

I think that secondary arches are about 'how to make it running' on a specific architecture. We can even rename the 'deployment' section if needed.

As Miroslav said, it would be great to see examples, which would help us decide to where to put it.

Post Devconf 2016, I had a short conversation with Petr Hracek regarding adding content for Secondary architectures[1] in Fedora. I liked the idea behind developer portal creation and the way currently it looks like.

Few people know how to work with Fedora Secondary architectures (e.g. building packages, fixing architecture specific build failures, getting access to a secondary architecture machines). One of the main reason for adding Secondary Architectures content is to provide all sorts of required and updated information to developers or newcomers at one place.

While writing about Secondary Architectures for developer portal, I noticed that it doesn't fit well in any of the existing sections (taken from master branch) which is Start a Project, Get tools,  Languages & databases, Deploy and distribute. Meanwhile, I thought why not create a new section which is dedicated to Architectures in general.

A new section with name Architectures make sense to me where we can include:

* Information for all architectures on which Fedora deal with
* We can have three sub-sections:
      * Primary Architectures -
ARM v7, x86_64, i686
      * Secondary
Architectures -  PowerPc, s3909x, AArch64
      * Other Architectures - Not yet supported in Fedora e.g.  Fedora Remix for ARM 

*  Each architectures will be explained separately w.r.t. working with that arch in Fedora
*  Including common build failures in packages and possible reasons of failures will also be useful for a package maintainers to fix build failures quickly.

This is a draft proposal as per my working experience with Fedora. I have worked a bit on it and attached a screenshot in email how this section would look like. I understand that work is required to make UI consistent with developer portal.

I would like to get your opinion/ feedback so that further work can be done to see it available on Fedora Developer Portal.
