Given our past history with passive requests for help, I think it 
might be beneficial to put a time limit on things. For example, if no 
i686 Kernel SIG steps up and agrees to handle bugs on that platform, 
we should strongly consider demoting i686 to secondary architecture 
for installation media at the Fedora 23 branch point (about six months 
from now).

Note: I'm only suggesting that we would demote the kernel and install 
media, *NOT* the 32-bit runtime libraries on an x86_64 system; we 
would still need to be building those.
