Would it make sense to start working with FESCO and QA on "reference"
platforms. These would be items that we definitively test against to
make sure they work on (and vice versa we can exclude platforms we
can't test/work on). The reason I am asking is that looking at the ARM
situation, it would be useful to narrow down testing to a subset of
boxes versus the N+1 versions of ARM out there and for cloud it might
make sense for our starting points to do the same.
