Thanks Fabian,

But my question was mainly about when should I expect a reliable
arm/arm64 repos that I can trust to use as a production server and
expect security updates to come in a timely manner as the normal
CentOS x86/x86_64?
Is ARM support something CentOS is targeting or just as a side project
when time is available?

BTW, the URL http://armv7.dev.centos.org/repodir/epel-pass-1/ is down
at the moment of writing this email.
