Short info about s390x status
- it was restarted earlier this year with the goal to have F-11 release
- still building F-11 packages - 5620 successful builds (--latest), ~360
ExcludeArchs, ~750 failures with the Java stack being the main hurdle
- we have some issues with capacity of the network connection to the
koji hub and it also limits our progress
- only a bunch of packages exist now on the koji hub, but we should
start doing composes soon(TM)
