Re: [opensuse-factory] Tumbleweed 32-bit roadmap?

What is the roadmap concerning Tumbleweed for Intel 32-bit (i586)
architecture? Will it supported into the dim and distant future?

Or will it maybe turn into a repository providing multilib stuff for
x86_64 only? A first step would be to raise the minimum architecture
level to that of x86_64, a second step would be to drop support for
running a 32bit kernel (but still allow to install a full 32bit
userland).

How many people really care for running _Tumbleweed_ on ancient
(<= i586) hardware?
