= System Wide Change: AArch64 Server Promotion =
* Peter Robinson <pbrobinson AT fedoraproject DOT org>
* Paul Whalen <pwhalen AT fedoraproject DOT org>
Promote Aarch64 server technologies to Primary Architecture status.
This would include the Server installer, the DVD installer ISOs, the
Cloud (qcow2 images) and Docker base images to the same status as
other primary Server architectures. This would NOT currently include
other components such as Workstation images/installs, any of the
various spins, or Fedora Atomic components.
== Detailed Description ==
The AArch64 Architecture in the server space is a mature product with
numerous platforms widely available for testing. We support both SBSA
Enterprise Haware as well as a number of Single Board Computers,
initially officially supported in Fedora 27 with the aarch64 SBC
Feature, with new device support being added all the time and more
widely available and affordable hardware.
The changes is actually a minor one as we already produce all the
deliverables as an Alternate Architecture, this primarily be a change
of where the output of the artifacts are delivered on the mirrors and
making the architecture a release blocking architecture.
This would NOT currently include other components such as Workstation
images/installs, any of the various spins, or Fedora Atomic
== Scope ==
* Proposal owners:
The general AArch64 support is already in place and is widely and
actively supported by the Fedora ARM SIG and numerous ARM vendors and
third parties in Fedora. There will be further and wider support,
hardware enablement, polish and general improvements.
* Other developers:
N/A: There's no work required for other developers, the aarch64
architecture is already widely supported as an Alternate Architecture.
* Release engineering:
Needs approval from release engineering as a primary architecture as
well as pungi configuration changes to output artifacts to new
location on the primary mirror.

* Policies and guidelines:
Updates to the primary architectures and release blocking details will
need to be updated to reflect that the AArch64 Server/Cloud/Docker
components are now considered primary.
* Trademark approval:
