I think you misunderstood me. I agree with importance of non-committers
contribution to the project.
My point is we can't say that the platform is "supported" until there
exist committer who regularly checks and promptly commits fixes for that platform.

That's why it is useless to make the list of platforms that someone wants
to be supported.

It is only actual participation that counts.
If someone wants to have a platform X supported, then it will take that person
to constantly submit fixes for that platform, earn committership,
and keep the platform X running by fixing breakages promptly.
And only then we will be able to say that platform X is supported.

Pentium M or Pentium 4 or anything newer.
It is officially called "Intel Architecture" or ia32 here,
but 'uname -m' returns i686.
