Hi Andreas,

I personally interested in this effort.

My customer is mostly running their system on quite old system, but it does
the job.

And I'm always provide my customer with CentOS, in anticipation if they
want to move to a supported OS later, they can just install Red Hat, and
very high probability that their application will just work.

But, if Red Hat, thus CentOS stops i686 release, I have no other option
than moving my customer to other distribution that support x86 machine.

I also believe a lot of 3rd world country still running a lot of x86
machine, and this is actually a big market that Red Hat is abandoning.

Maybe Karanbir can point that out to Red Hat when you have a meeting with
