What I'm trying to say is that one of the things we're trying to solve with
the new arch policy is the hardware issue - we want people to be able to
interface with the Fedora build system with hardware that isn't in our server
locations. Even if there is a groundswell for Fedora/390, no one's going to
send us a mainframe (and, honestly, even if they were, I'm pretty sure we
wouldn't want to deal with it ;) ) - therefore, it's best to design the policy
so that it can work for community-supported arches who house the hardware
themselves.
