Yes, it should. I think that's already part of Spot's proposal.

I've effectively been doing that job for PowerPC for a while already┬╣.
Which is why I know that half the 'suddenly failed to build' bugs are
actually generic problems which the package owner should care about, and
not really arch-specific at all. And that's just the ones which got as
far as an ExcludeArch -- the trivial ones which the maintainer fixed for
herself aren't included, and I suspect those are even _more_ likely to
be generic bugs rather than arch-specific.


┬╣ although the recent restriction on commit access to Fedora packages has
  been _very_ unhelpful.
