Hello, After long discussion with the sparc team and other developers, the Security Team has decided to drop SPARC as a security supported architecture. This decision follows the council decision on 2016-12-11, "The council defers to the security team, but is supportive of dropping security support for sparc if it is unable to generally meet the security team timelines."
The list of security supported architectures is maintained in the [Security Vulnerability Treatment Policy] The consequences of the removal of security supported architecture include (i) GLSA will be released before a version of a package is necessarily stable for the architecture (ii) architecture-specific issues will not be investigated. In addition to this announcement, glsa-check will be updated to present necessary information for sparc users. As most security issues are cross-architecture, glsa-check will continue to be operational for sparc based on generic GLSAs for other architectures.
