There's been a lot of talk amongst the flavors of dropping i386, but I
think rather than making it a flavor decision, it would be a lot simpler
if Canonical would just put their foot down and say they won't be
providing the infrastructure and engineering for i386 images. Then if
flavors want to continue doing it, they'll have to deal with those
resources on their own. It seems to me the vast majority of flavors are
interested in dropping it and have already. That said, why not just make
the decision for the rest of the folks hanging on to it?
