I'm referring to things like how to pick which activities are used by
OOB, a new arch has nothing to do with that what so ever.

Again not referring to upstream OS stuff but OOB processes which
should make no difference if its a mainline release, a rawhide release
or a build using any other arch.

SOP should be for things like "how do I specific which Activities are
included in a particular release".... that is what I'm referring to.
That is a SOP because the process is standard whether its a stable
release or a dev one, the x86 platform or ARM. So if you want to be
specific show me the x86 SOP for the 11.2 release for specifying the
Activities included in the release. From there I would be able to work
out how to do the same for 11.3.x dev releases for ARM :-)
