Description

Hi,
I am (attempting) to package ceph for a distro linux named Mageia. The previous mess put in the source code made up drop the package a few times before, but I am motivated to resurrect it :)

I've been "shocked" by 2 things:
1) I've not been able to find in the docs and in the website, and even on wikipedia, a simple introduction on what is ceph (see below).

2) I've not been able to find anywhere, including the source code, what are the supported architectures...
Ceph-15.2.4 builds fine on x86_64 and aarch64, but incompatible types pop out from everywhere as soon as a compilation is attempted for 32 bits platforms (i686, arm etc...)

example: the webpage starts with a complete useless information for someone in desire to discover what is ceph :)

"
Ceph provides seamless access to objects using native language bindings or radosgw (RGW), a REST interface that’s compatible with applications written for S3 and Swift.
Ceph’s RADOS Block Device (RBD) provides access to block device images that are striped and replicated across the entire storage cluster.

This one may be the only one relevant, and could be expanded a bit?
Ceph provides a POSIX-compliant network file system (CephFS) that aims for high performance, large data storage, and maximum compatibility with legacy"

Cheers.
