While in I agree that we _want_ to be able to do this, do we want to
hold up any progress on secondary arches on a) ensuring available
space[1] and b) setting up a sane[2] infrastructure for handling the
putting up of the arch trees/ISOs?  I don't personally think so.

Except that even now to download Fedora, you go to mirror.kernel.org (or
other local mirror site of your choice).  We're not saying that we're
not going to prominently link on the "Download Fedora" page.


[1] And sending 160GB drives doesn't help ;-)  That's not the sort of
available and mirrorable space that's really needed to be able to work
within the existing infrastructure we've got for hosting content
[2] I really don't want more instances along the lines of how Extras
packages get up now.  In fact, I hope that we manage to "fix" that with
some of the other pieces in play.
