And Red Hat shouldn't be the de-facto provider of your secondary hardware.  
Part of the point here is that if we're going ot have these arches, there is 
going to need to be a community keeping them going.  The work and burden 
shouldn't always fall back on Red Hat as it has in the past.  We don't want 
to be like the other distros that are pooping out arch support just so that 
they can list something else on their webpage.  If we're going to have an 
arch, it needs to be a viable and active community who will be self 
sufficient.  We're providing the tools and software infrastructure to make 
their arch happen, but they need to bring people and machines.
