Is there a way to mass-file bug reports, so that each Mono package that
currently do not build on PPC64 have a bug filed? (It's supposed to be
there for any ExcludeArch, but this rule is often ignored).
If maintainers are instructed to then block on the bug entries for their
build requirements that are not currently available, then we can break
from this situation where currently, a lot of maintainers (who don't
have PPC64 hardware!) just give up rechecking.
