This status mail will briefly discuss the following tasks, objectives and/or
projects related to the GDP:
Separating Architecture-Specific Instructions
A discussion on #gentoo-dev asks the GDP to develop a way for users to only view
the installation instructions for their architecture. A mail on gentoo-doc
explained the issue and another
mail discusses the requirements.
As this is a frequently asked feature, this request has been added to the GDP
TODO and is ready to be picked up by
a couple of developers (#42823).
