That is completely missing the point. The tinderbox *IS* using
baseline. And since the baseline is not recent enough to build 32bit
anymore, there is *no way* to have it still produce builds. Otherwise
32bit binaries could still be provided.

Anyone is free to setup a tinderbox and send results - no registration
or similar needed for that,

While I agree that overhead of x86 release build may not be worth it, the advantages of maintaining a working x86 build are clear.  My suggestion would be to upgrade @87 to CentOS 7 or Debian 9.0 before bit rot makes this a difficult task. Currently master has no problem building on 32-bit Fedora 30.

My personal interest is having baseline builds verified. So there is
no point if the build succeeds in a current distro, but cannot run on
the end-users systems because of glibc or other requirements.

But again: anyone can setup a tinderbox...
