How do you get such implicit message?  That is your bias.  We still have
aarch64 and aarch32 buildslaves, they are quite stable, and catches
some build failures with g++ 4.8 and regressions.

These builders are disabled because they are useless.  Sergio asks for
participation to make these builders useful.  If no one wants to make these
builders better, or cares about them, it is reasonable to disable them.  It
is equivalent to code/feature/port deprecation, if nobody maintains the
code/feature/port, we'll deprecate it.

I don't see the inconsistency here.  We need more participation or contribution
to make these builders more useful, it is simple, isn't?
