Let me know if Emmet and Tristan's respective explanations leave 
anything uncovered.

Good point. We should emphasize the benefits to users better than I 
have. Tristan's point is pertinent here: the benefit is the reduced 
overhead from maintaining only one set of metadata.

Setting up a runner for each architecture will be required. I expect 
that we can re-use what's already in use, yes, rather than needing to 
acquire anything new. Therefore we're not expecting anything from fd.o 
to this end.

Thanks. These notes are just capturing discussions had: we would of 
course stick to that Code of Conduct.
