<civodul>mark_weaver: do you think we should start getting Hydra build core-updates, with the "core" set?
<mark_weaver>civodul: so, there are two more things I'd like to get in: passing --build by default in gnu-build-system, and I'm also thinking now that armhf should require neon support in the processor.
<mark_weaver>the reason for the latter is that it turns out that neon is a common requirement for optimized assembly code written for ARM, in things like ORC, video codecs, etc.
<mark_weaver>and it turns out that the reason Debian armhf made their requirements slightly less than Neon was to support a couple of pieces of hardware that may have been important at the time, but probably not so much today.
<mark_weaver>civodul: so, I'm a bit uncertain of how to add the --build option by default without breaking cross-compilation. I don't have a clear picture of how cross compilation is handled. any hints you could give me would be appreciated.
<a_e>Can I push libreoffice? It looks like a very ordinary package now after the xmlsec tarball simplification.
<civodul>mark_weaver: the 'configure' phase simply checks for #:target, and adds --host based on this
