We're already looking at enabling atomic in Fedora 25 for both aarch64
and Power64.

actively investigating and working towards this. I'll be enabling for
F-25 in the run up to beta. I wanted to do it for Alpha but just
didn't have enough bandwidth.

We've had docker and cloud images in Fedora on aarch64 (and Power64)
since Fedora 24, similarly with kube too with various partners already
playing/testing it.

The Raspberry Pi aarch64 kernel support is mostly there now with 4.8,
still a few bits missing like WiFi and some minor display issues but
if you don't care about that side of things it's usable. I've not yet
enabled the aarch64 side of things in Fedora as yet.

We'll be adding support for RPi 2/3 for ARMv7 in Fedora 25 (real soon
now), I'm working on aarch64 image support for aarch64 in general for
SBCs such as Pine64 for F-25 too,not yet sure which devices we'll
support this cycle just yet though.

Responses above. Feel free to reach out with any queries etc.
