So, arm/arm64 (armhfp/aarch64) are released and maintained. While on the
armhfp side we weren't able to build everything, at least everthing that
was built/released/signed/pushed  to mirror.centos.org is maintained
(see for example the updates for armhfp/CentOS 7.21511 :

WRT to armv7.dev.centos.org, it was announced that we had to reorganize
several physical nodes in a rack, and yes, that node was impacted (see
but is now back online.
One goal behind that maintenance window is that we'll implement (in the
following days) some mechanism to automatically submit build jobs for
updates pkgs at the same time as for the other arches (while x86_64 is
obviously the authoritative one). Actually aarch64 was added in the last
weeks and we'll now add armhfp to the same process (as it was done
"semi" automated until now)

I hope that this answers your questions :-)
