I think we need two lists: one with the upstream testers (with arch+OS, not just OS *or* arch), and one for upstream distro packagers.

We need to have this table clear for all *supported* platforms that we do releases, including x86, x86_64, ARM, AArch64 and MIPS. If the other platforms want to claim "official support", they have to volunteer for release testing and add their names to this table.

We also need people testing different OSs on each platform, and that's where Sylvestre and others get in. I don't think we *need* different packages for different distros in the upstream release page, and the binary packages should be done in a minimal configuration that "can" work on newer distros.

But each distro maintainer, like Sylvestre, should be creating the packages directly (as they are doing), and thus, making the download link on the page redundant and potentially misleading.
