Not a dev, so this might not be perfectly accurate, but I think the plan
was to have the community write the tools (under devs mentorship) needed
to automate building and packaging of software for i686 and then publish
them in a main repo copy targeting only i686, while still having it in
the current web interface, only stating i686 as a community supported
architecture (as opposed to x86_64 remaining then the only supported

I think that some devs should be joining the discussion here soon, they
were at least two interested in mentoring the project.
