Somewhat related to Is there an official policy around what arches pulp supports? We should probably test against these arches too.

As far as I know, we don't. My thinking is that things should generally work the same across architectures when we're using packages provided by fedora, but Fedora's own architecture support seems pretty limited, with "secondary" architectures (like ppc64) not receiving the same level of support as the "primary" arches:

So I propose we effectively do the same, and only support arches listed as primary for fedora, and also be explicitly about what arches we support for rhel, which for el6 would probably be i686 & x86_64, and for el7 only x86_64.

Since we're not releasing builds for EL6 anymore, I think we can ignore a statement on it. For all other distros we support, (EL7+Fedora) I think going with x86_64 for now would be good. That is what we currently do (iirc).

Note that for pulp-agent we need to continue to build for other architectures. Broad compatibility is valuable there so I would recommend i386, i686, and x86_64. This should be easy because I believe everything required is a .noarch package. The thread referenced below talks some about that.

We discussed this some on the pulp-dev mailing list. See the thread titled "Dropping i386 Support" in the December archives
