I think, the term "arch" is a little problematic in QEMU parlance. IMHO,
"target" should be used instead. ("arch" is used in Linux kernel community)
The overall structure of the "tags" should be a little different. My
"isa" (instruction set architecture, determeines how the kernel and rootfs are
This would allow clear view what a particular acceptance test tests, and will
enforce consistency and clarity in the test organization across the board.
That said, I am very excited about this series.
