It looks fine to me, but I thought we were going to move away from
'secondary arch' in favor of 'alternative arch' ?
That can very well be and I missed it, so let's please s/secondary/alternative/g
But I guess this is
really just anything excluded, it could be a primary as well?
The hook will point out any commit that is touching either ExclusiveArch or
ExcludesArch, regardless of the arch impacted.
There will be false-positive for sure (for example epel packages introduced in
certain arch which doesn't exist in RHEL).
I guess the email might go to the releng list? Or devel I suppose,
might be noisy there.
Is there an alternative-arch-sig list of some sort?
