One topic for 11.3.0 is whether to maintain separate repos for x86 and
arm platforms, or to share the repos and count on proper 'arch' being
set on rpms so that OOB pulls the right package.

If we keep them separate,

 - we'll want to sync noarch packages
 - we'll want a script to check that binary packages are in sync

if we mash them together...

 - repo size will grow - possibly a minor concern re repo metadata
 - bootfw needs to get its arch sorted - how do we currently sort xo-1
vs xo-1.5 bootfw?
 - any other concern???
