I don't think 2GB is not enough for 32-bit machine.
I see armel is already not a candidate for buster .
So it seems we can discuss armhf, but no armel at all.
I don't agree with this idea.
And I think we should treat armel and armhf equally.
Both armel and armhf are working fine are millions of boards and
embedded devices, and have stable quality .
They deserve the support from a community driven distro.
