* pcre3- Available on: Fedora ~ pcre, Ubuntu ~ libpcre3, Debian ~ libpcre3. Perl Compatible RegExp Lib. Seems to exist on aarch64 as pcre.aarch64 package.* unrar-free- Not Available: Fedora, aarch64. Available: Ubuntu ~ unrar-free, Debian ~ unrar-free. Seems like chance to beat x86 performance asm with C and gcc!* vflib3- Not Available: Fedora, aarch64. Available: Ubuntu ~ vflib3, Debian ~ vflib3. Not priority at all but another interesting opportunity to beat x86 performance asm with C.* php-apc- Exists on aarch64 as: php-pecl-apcu.aarch64. Cache module for PHP 5. Multiple different platform asm used for atomics. Available on: Fedora ~ php-pecl-apc, Ubuntu ~ php-apc, Debian ~ php-apc. gcc atomics opportunity!* mysql-5.5- Includes x86 performance asm for crypto and checksum. Seems like relevant performance improvement opportunity. Available on: Fedora ~ mysql, Ubuntu ~ mysql-server-5.5, Debian ~ mysql-server-5.5.* fwts- Firmware test suite, marked on linaro list as being "already worked on".* llvm-3.1- Seems to exist on aarch64 as "llvm.aarch64" package. Exists on aarch64 as llvm.aarch64 in Fedora 21. Nothing mentioned in regards to performance.* smlsharp- May have a source file that needs to be completely re-written in C. Also optional x86 performance asm for atomics and checksum performance, opportunity for C and gcc optimizations. Only exists in Ubuntu, not on aarch64.* mpfr4- Exists on aarch64 ~ "mpfr.aarch64". C Floating-point math lib, contains A32 asm code, but no aarch64 asm, for what reason the asm is included I am unsure right now(probably performance). Available on: Fedora ~ mpfr, Ubuntu ~ libmpfr4, Debian ~ libmpfr4. Could be great opportunity to learn gcc floating-point optimizations!* gccxml- Doesn't seem difficult to port to aarch64. Not a high priority as not used a lot. Available on: Fedora, Ubuntu, and Debian ~ gccxml.* puf- Low priority for porting. Contains trivial asm for bitops performance, opportunity for C and gcc optimizations. Not Available: Fedora.* insserv - Boot sequence organizer. Doesn't seem like a priority to port.

* mozjs – included in Fedora20. The latest version is 17.0.0-8. fc20. Patch for [https://apps.fedoraproject.org/packages/mozjs17/sources/ aahrch64] implemented on 06 Jan 2014. Aarch64-64k-page patch added 06 Jun 2014.
 
* ruby1.9.1 – included in Fedora20. Aarch64 support current from version [https://apps.fedoraproject.org/packages/ruby/changelog/ 2.0.0.195-8+].
 
* xmds – not present in Fedora. Available in Ubuntu repository. Supports only amd64/i386 no arm64/aarch64.
 
* binfmtc - not present in Fedora. Available in Ubuntu repository. Supports only amd64/i386 no arm64/aarch64.
 
* rheolef - not present in Fedora. Available in Ubuntu repository. Supports only amd64/i386 no arm64/aarch64.
 
* aribas - not present in Fedora. Available in Ubuntu repository. Supports only amd64/i386 no arm64/aarch64.
* xen-api-libs – couldn’t find it in the Fedora, Ubuntu or Debian package database. However, I did come across a discussion of porting it over to be compatible with arm on the xen [http://lists.xen.org/archives/html/xen-api/2013-05/msg00108.html list].
* bunny – not sure if I found the right package in the [https://apps.fedoraproject.org/packages/bunny Fedora] package database, however, according to the [https://code.google.com/p/bunny-the-fuzzer/ upstream] website, this packages use has been deprecated in favor of [https://code.google.com/p/american-fuzzy-lop/ american-fuzzy-lop].
===Linpei Fan===* blcr* grub2* php5* libinnodb* ocamlnwchem – Although the [http://performance.linaro.org/find/ Linaro] package page says that there isn’t a version available for Fedora, searching for it on the [https://apps.fedoraproject.org/packages/nwchem/changelog/ Fedora] package database, I believe that arm support has been added as of version 6.3.2-sha* libhmsbeagle* maude* rtai* kamailio* gesftpserver* bsign* openjdk11 which seems to be the latest version. It seems as if they were excluding arm from version 6.3.2-65.
* eigen2 – according to [http://arm.koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/buildinfo?buildID=163849 this], it seems as if this package has already been ported to work with the arm architecture.
* vo-aacenc – Not present in Fedora. The Ubuntu package database indicates that it’s not arm compatible. The Debian package database, however, shows that this package is being [https://packages.debian.org/search?arch=arm64&searchon=names&keywords=vo-aacenc worked] on. There is no current release that is stable.
===Omid Djahanpour===* mozjs* ruby1sbcl – present in Fedora and seems like this package is compatible with arm, according to the upstream [http://sourceforge.net/p/sbcl/mailman/message/32585701/ website].9However, there seems to be some minor complications when building it from source.1* xmds* binfmtc* rheolef* aribas* xen-api-libs* bunny* nwchem* eigen2* vo-aacenc* sbcl
