This sounds like the perfect use case for a SCM feature I haven't had
the time to work on.
If all commit diffs are sent to a message bus by way of a git hook, then
one consumer on the bus could be canning for additions of ExcludeArch.
When these are discovered a bug could be filed automatically, or some
group would get notified, basically something would happen, and we
wouldn't depend on a human noticing the change or following policy to
file a bug.
In the short term, if this is something we see high value in tracking,
we can just add another git hook to do this directly, rather than
relying on a message bus.
