To: ubuntu-server <ubuntu-server at lists.ubuntu.com>

Hi -server

Every cycle we go through a bit/lot of pain as new versions of Ceph are
released; the upstream project does zero testing on 32 bit architectures so
a new drop of the Ceph source package normally results in several long
iterations (due to the build time of ceph) to identify and resolve 32 != 64
bit type issues across the new delta in the code base.

I'd like to propose dropping armhf (as the last 32 bit architecture in
Ubuntu) as an architecture Ceph is built for; there are a number of reverse
depends which would need an update as well:


I'd also like to understand whether there is actually any subset of users
actually using the armhf packages that Ubuntu provides for Ceph!
