Sounds interesting..
But not clear what is the goal for that SIG?
Since OpenStack claims to have support for different HW.

Are there any additional reqs? Clearly CI ones.

Pick me Pick me :)

I've been around OpenStack for about 5 years now, the last couple have been focused on brining multi-arch support (albeit ppc64le) into tripleo building on the enablement work that others have done.

I'm keen to work with the SIG, to build out the ARM support and at the same time ensure we don't make it hard for other architectures to do the same

Yours Tony.
