We have a small team here and we are willing to also help to make this work.

Hi Zhenyu,

I think this is a great idea, both supporting more hardware, and
enlarging the oVirt

Regarding hardware support we depend mostly on libvirt and qemu, and I
don't know
that is the status. Adding relevant lists and people.

I don't know about any effort  on oVirt side, but last week I added
arm builds for
ovirt-imageio and it works:

We have many dependendencies, but oVirt itself is mostly python and java, with
tiny bits in C or using ctypes, so it should not be too hard.

I think the first thing is getting some hardware for testing. Do you
have such hardware,
or have some contacts that can help to get hardware contribution for this?
