containing one macro file.
In the currently running FPC meeting proposed having fedora-rpm-macros
or fedora-rpm-config or something where we can collect these.
We had GNAT_arches in redhat-rpm-config for a while. Then we needed to

was created, which has the advantage that we who maintain Ada packages
also maintain the relevant macros, so we can update the architecture
lists without troubling anyone else.
Would everyone who needs to edit one of these macros be made
co-maintainer of the collection package? Or are there people who are
willing to make changes on request? Enough such people to always be
