Changes in ExcludeArch/ExclusiveArch can happen due to any arches
(all supported arches in Fedora). For example, package foo is currently
ExclusiveArch to x86_64 and now it's been changed to x86_64 and armv7hl
Also gap between secondary and primary arches has been reduced at least in
terms of build (all arches other than s390x gets build in primary koji
Considering that, I see two option here:
1. Send email notification to mailing list(s) for which
ExcludeArch/ExclusiveArch has been
2. Create a new ML say architecture-excludes(a)lists.fp.o (as suggested by Dennis)
and send all related notification there.
Among both, I would prefer 2nd option.
