Control: severity -1 normal
Control: block -1 by 831425

(Delayed response because due to #397761 Uploaders don't get bug mails.)

arch:all packages being buildable on only some architectures isn't
considered a problem -- although no way to add metadata documenting this
state is an issue.

Your reasoning for filing testsuite failures with severity:serious is good:
unlike "fails due to uninstallable B-Deps" it usually points to the package
being actually broken on the arch in question.  This is not the case for
3270font, though -- the font works correctly when built on amd64/armhf/...
and copied to i386/hppa, and broken if built on i386/hppa and copied to a
modern architecture.  It's all fine if caught by the testsuite -- and unlike
almost any font package, 3270font has one.

Thus, I'm downgrading the severity.

The real bug is #831425 in fontforge, but not many care about developing on
i386/hppa, thus it's only severity:important.

Thanks for your QA efforts!
