So yeah, I think cleaning up and modernizing all this should be in-
scope for the Change, thanks for highlighting it.

The arm.fp.o site and the docs page you used are both, I think, older
things that date from before we really supported aarch64 much at all,
and they clearly haven't been updated. The "current" approach is not
great either, though. If you just go in through the front door of the
docs page you'd go to "User Documentation" for "Fedora Linux 35", which
takes you here:

from where I guess you'd go to
, which has an "ARM images" section which points you to . That page then
points you to , which
does at least cover aarch64, but seems to give armhfp equal or higher

It would be great if we can get a doc person to take a look at all
these pages referenced above and try to streamline them, modernize
them, and get them all singing from the same hymn sheet, I guess.
