I see no reason why failed builds should be pushed to the repo without

happen, they're usually the responsibility of the package maintainer
rather than something the arch experts need to look in to anyway.

I think i agree with you on this.  I think a build failure needs to
result in some definitive action  so that the appropriate group can
figure out how to fix it.  If the maintainer decides to excludearch
that arch... then so be it...but its then at least documented for
later investigation.


The fact that koji now builds for ppc64 has shaken a few bugs out of some of my packages, most of which every packager should be able to fix (with a little help if needed). I think that just allowing packages to fail for secondary archs, is too easy. Atleast people should try to get things to build, and if that fails add it to some kinda tracker bug.
