Speaking about advance-warning, please remove armel and armhf from the
list of architectures planned for stretch LTS.
Building armel or armhf in stretch on armv8 hardware is untested,
and for armhf there are known problems in unstable.
The current 32bit armv7 builders are scheduld to be decommissioned
by DSA after the non-LTS lifetime of stretch, there won't be any
buildds suitable for building armel/armhf for stretch LTS.
