There is no clear definition of which CPUs are primary supported by Fedora and with Fedora 13 Geode LX support was silently dropped. Therefore it would be nice to avoid confusion and unexpected change by agreeing on which CPUs are supported.
Create a list of supported CPUs and make it a release criterion that Fedora actually works on all supported CPUs, i.e. if any other test case does not work because of the CPU, i.e. the kernel does not boot, then Fedora is not ready for release.
In F13, gcc changed to not support the Geode LX anymore: A bug report was closed as NOTABUG: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=579838
There is no feature about this and it is not mentioned on the release notes or the F13 common bugs.
Decide the CPU list, document it and add it to the release criteria. If the Geode LX is decoded to still be supported, change gcc or the kernel (or whatever is needed) to support it again and until it is resolved, document this in the F13 common bugs wiki page. If it is decided to drop support, then document it in the release notes.
Fesco to discuss, QA to update the release criteria, gcc/kernel maintainer to restore support or docs to document it in the release notes.
