does this mean, we need to rename the repos to include the ARCH in the 
name? probably no... but the noarch repo would be only one repo, 
right? probably with its own categories (fonts, i18n, docs, ...). 

a x86_64 archlinux would have then the following repos:

[core] - /core/os/x86_64
[extra] - /extra/os/x86_64
[unstable] - /unstable/os/x86_64

[community] - /community/os/x86_64

[testing] - /testing/os/x86_64

[armarium] - /armarium/os/noarch

armarium would be the new repo, that is arch independend. 
i took the word from latin for bookcase, since it holds things in it 
to be read, used but are independend of the reader/user. little bit 
philosophy... only a suggestion on the name... feel free to take 
something else if you dislike it.

in such a setup, who would have write access to it? it would be a repo 
for devs or also TU's? since community is arch dependend!

thinking through the idea, i cannot think of something else more 
elegant. therefore +1 ... under the condition that we have probably 
to settle some details on the way of implementing it.
