if we can consolidate the altarch cloud sig content, that would be quite

would you also be able to use the same tag's for ppc8le as aarch64 ? or
would this involve a complete new set of tags, and therefore a
completely new way to run the merge ?

I guess a question for Thomas - how would a 3 way merge like this work
anyway ? how would we track the srpms for content that changes per arch,
unless we force all altarch to consume the same content, and ifarch the
arch specific changes ?
