So. Given that we needed to build the world, on the target, this is what we did and how we did it. And even bootstrapping Debian I happen to know is a great PITA too. Wookey and others have done some good work there, and I'm genuinely impressed with the multi-arch work that feeds into some of this (and which we don't currently have plans to implement, but that could change if there's more than ARM specific interest in doing it within Fedora).
All of this stuff is hard. Bootstrapping happens relatively infrequently but we decided it was better to know how to do this. The next trick will be to have it nicely documented for the next time someone needs to do this.
