It would be happier if you'd left the discussion on the same page,
rather than moving it to
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/TomCallaway/SecondaryArchitecturesDiscussion

I feel very strongly that allowing partially-failed builds to be shipped
without _any_ intervention from the package maintainer is a mistake.

My experience is that the majority of the time when a package fails to
build on one architecture but not others, that is actually a generic bug
which could bite on all architectures -- not an arch-specific bug. It's
just that some bugs aren't 100% reproduceable, and show up in some
circumstances and not others. We should at least _glance_ at failures.

I'm only suggesting that the packager should need to _look_ at the
failure before filing the required ExcludeArch bug and pushing a 'ship
it anyway' button. I'm not saying that we should force them to start the
build from scratch again like we do at the moment.
