This is causing python-dask to ftbfs when it gets scheduled on an arm builder…

Comment 2 Zbigniew Jędrzejewski-Szmek 2021-06-17 11:05:43 UTC
I think we'd be better off just skipping the tests on 32 bit arches.
When noarch packages build-require an archful package that is only available on some arches,
things become very annoying. Either we have to retry builds until we happen to hit a supported
builder, or make the noarch package archful and propagate the arch exclusions. But this 
propagates through the tree, and is a terrible solution. So actually dumb rebuilding in 
a loop is a better of the two options.

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 35 development cycle.
Changing version to 35.

Comment 4 Ben Beasley 2022-05-02 00:47:41 UTC
We already have in the spec file:

> # Upstream does not test, nor support 32 bit systems
> # Issue:
> # Fedora bug:
> ExcludeArch:    %{arm32} %{ix86}

With these approved for F37:

…there is no need to keep this tracking bug open any longer.
