but do we need to ?  specially since that excludes anyone from being
able to help, and the epel process has been exceptionally slow, given
that it was kicked off in Feb.

ideally, epel would do the arch builds on their own - but the lack of
interest there just points at us helping a community come and do it here
right ?

I dont think it would be midstream, we can just resend the entire rpm
stack up into cbs and there are more cbs builders for ex for aarch64.
