Re: what is the current state of YP supported architectures?

There is a difference between supported target architectures, and supported target machines; it's easier to talk about the latter.

Oe-core layer directly supports QEMU targets (which are *not* suitable for any physical HW):

Poky distro additionally supports beaglebone, edgerouter and 'generic' x86 (which basically works but is far inferior to meta-intel support):
The autobuilder checks that they build, but does not check that they work on actual HW.

On the Yocto project Autobuilder additionally machines defined by meta-intel are tested, again without booting on real HW:

Everything else is provided by 3rd party vendor or community layers, with *wildly* varying levels of quality and support.

the world WRT supported architectures?
