I agree.  In fact, I'd go further and say every single use of ExcludeArch
or ExclusiveArch ought to be associated with a bug # in bugzilla.  If it's
"it's yaboot, dummy" then that bug # can be CLOSED-WONTFIX from the start.
I favor this because it makes it straightforward to have automated
processes that troll the packages and complain about spec files that use
these tags without having a bug associated in bugzilla.  I think having a
bugzilla report explaining why it was never a problem is preferable to
putting magic exclusion lists into any such automated process.


Thanks,
Roland
