I'm not sure if this is the correct place to ask, but -- how long is
the 32-bit version of Tumbleweed going to be supported with new
patches? I'm just curious because Leap and SLE are only 64-bit.

I hold it like this with i586: as long as I can without alienating the
entire distro.

One thing needs to be said clearly here though: the test coverage is
only on x86_64 - on i586 we just have a couple minimal tests left in
openQA. So in the end, we know it builds and is 'generally installable'
. Any test beyond that is not covered (and, as we just have seen with
Thunderbird: a fix that worked for x86_64 did not cover i586). Of
course we will try to fix even that problem.

What holds us back from adding more i586 tests to openQA? We don't expect
it to "look different", right? So I guess either capacity for testing or
it just has not been done?

Basically nothing. Dive in, write the tests.

Nothing needs to be written though. The existing openQA tests are fine. It
would simply need enablement in the test scenario selection. It's that easy
with openQA ;-) See rbrown's answer for why we should not do this though.
