Why Multiple Forums for different issues? Arch Linux/ARM?

Why do we have different forum systems with different login requirements
for different Arch issues? Seem like KISS would dictate - 1 system and 1 login
for all forum issues...


Is there some logic that tells us which issues should go to the regular
forum and which go to the ARM forum?

No idea. I don't like it either.

I can't see any logic. I don't like the fragmentation.
It's counter-effective and has nothing to do with freedom :)

These are the bits I've been missing, thanks for clarification.

p.s. I agree the official logo makes the ArchLinux ARM status confusing.
