First community contributed build request for the el7b1 distro! :

We're going to build the entire rhel7b1 srpm stock against f19-i686 +
rolling build repos into target c6.99.00-i686.

Once we have that done, we remove the f19 requirement and rebuild
against c6.99.00-i686 into c6.99.01-i686 rolling builds.

That should give us a good idea of where things are w.r.t i686.

We can then check back into what is needed into the x86_64 tree for
multilib, and list the rest of the distro. Once we have that, I'd like
to start a conversation around what is needed and how people feel about
'owning' the i686 that isnt needed for multilib x86_64.

For now, the churn will start, build logs are going to the
centos-build-reports list (
http://lists.centos.org/pipermail/centos-build-reports )

This is what a success report looks like
the build-id is timestamp to a second's resolution. For centos6 one of
the key things we've had to do ( increasingly lesser of ) is to rewind
the buildroot states ( aka. git blame, but for the entire distro as a
whole ) and patch blame ( aka git blame, for the spec file, rewinding
patch layers ). The Build-ID is key to that process.

Based on initial builds, we are not going to need any of this anymore (
we've not used it in el6 since the 6.3+updates days ).
