after long discussions we came to the conclusion that we will drop
32/31-bit support from the upcoming Fedora releases. There are 2 main
reasons - technical and resources. From the technical side more and
more projects either focus on 64-bit s390x or even support only s390x
and with the broad dependency chains it affects large parts of the
current package set in Fedora. From the resource side doing 2
sub-architectures simply requires twice the number of resources
(computing time, disk space) than doing just one. For human resources
the ratio is even worse, because we need to fix or workaround the
limitations of the 32-bit case.
So from now we have dropped s390 sub-arch from Rawhide (aka Fedora
25). Removing the support from Fedora 24 is also being considered,
especially in the sight of possible 32-bit related issues during the
year of planned life for the release.
we have disabled the 31/32 bit builds for F-24 earlier today. Fedora 24
is in the final freeze before the GA meaning just few packages should
get newer builds than there are today. The build system will carry the
s390 rpms forever if anyone would need them. The F-24 release will be
thus 64-bit only.
Bye bye, s390 and long live s390x :-)
