thanks for your interest in the katacontainers packages.
FYI kata packages were recently added in Factory, and I gave priority
x86 as that's the only architecture I could run tests on.
I'm adding Penny in Cc, she's a kata contributor for the ARM
architecture, as she kindly accepted to help us getting packages
working for aarch64.

It would be preferable to have kvmsmall flavor for non-x86 too. That's
what I started to do here:
However this ended up being less simple than expected. If you are
knowledgeable about the topic, I'm looking for help :-)
Not aware of that bug, I am maintaining the four (five) arm flavors in my
spare time and that is not working well, with armv6hl and armv7hl 5.3 still
missing on master branch for weeks. So adding another separately
maintained flavor to my plate will not be appreciated. I'd much prefer the
default (aarch64) and lpae (armv7hl) flavors to be reused please.
Please note that kvmsmall is "just" a diff from default flavor, similar to 64kb
flavor, but with more lines. 😉
If you run out of time to update some kernel configs, just ping me. IIRC, Yousaf and
Matthias did some updates in the past, as well.
I have updated katacontainers-image-initrd to use the default flavor,
and it is now compiling on all architectures:
ge-initrd It should be available in Factory

Does having a package in Factory not building on non-x86_64 archs
cause any problems?
