Re: OpenGL to OpenGL ES change on arm64?

hey Matthias,
after reading the bug, it's implied the binaries being asked for removal were somehow built with gl (possibly sw implementation of gl?)....please cmiiaw

as to the request, never say never, but at least i've never seen an arm chipset in the wild with a gl enabled gpu (like the bug indicates they're all gles). 
so i'm not sure of the value of having those binaries present where at least in real application, there's no gl ?

LP: #1586026 asks for the removal of binary packages on arm64 which cannot be

I don't see any discussion about this.  How does this affect things like GPU
accelerators and CUDA aware packages?
