Hi Jerry,

WRT expanding rootfs :

Please note that for rpi3 we got new images for CentOS 7.3.1611 (and
signed pkgs will land soon on mirror.centos.org) here :

/root/README on those images now states this :
"If you want to automatically resize your / partition, just type the
following (as root user):
/usr/local/bin/rootfs-expand" (starting from the 7.31611 images, as we
rely now on cloud-utils-growpart)

WRT aarch64, there is nothing on our side that supports rpi3 (yet). Jim
is having a look at building a test image, but needs to backport some
specific patches (basically from Fedora) into kernel 4.5 that is used in
el7 aarch64 .

More details and discussions on the dedicated arm-dev list
