And even is they had, I still suspect that all volunteer packagers have
enough knowledge to fix packages on all those archs (I, for example,
don't have that that much programming experience to do this).

And even more: If one package does not get fixed in lets say around (4|
7|10|14|"your vote here") days, publish it for the other archs if it
does no other real harm for the project.

Well, testing the important packages might be possible. But I suspect
"architecture specific Fedora community developers" can test all
releases and updates of Gregs "... we scale this project to a million
packages?  Because that's the goal". 

Maybe we should use the testing-repo more. Verified packages could get
moved to the normal repo after 4 (or maybe 7) days, unverified packages
will get moved automatically after 28 days (for example).
