indeed .. that is one issue. I am working on it .. we also have to do
i386 as that is released in the base OS .. so I have to get a working
devtoolset-7 for i386, ppc64, ppc as well .. and the latest rust and the
latest llvm .. for i386, x86_64, ppc64le, ppc64, ppc, aarch64, armhfp
.. that is for C&
I would just do x86_64 and i386 first, then the rest .. BUT .. since I
have to bootstrap the devtoolket and llvm and rust on c7 for i386 anyway
.. also doig ti for the other arches does nto really add any more time
as the compiles are in parallel on different machines.
Hopefully for C7 I will have updates by Monday
For C6 .. I am going to need to rework rust, etc. .. that will take
longer .. rust requires python27 not python26 .. so lots of patches are
going to be req'd for that.
