I note that https://pkg.freebsd.org/ does not list FreeBSD:12:aarch64
under the Tier-2 support Package sets but instead on the list with
i386 and amd64. But the same is true for FreeBSD:11:aarch64 .

FreeBSD:12:armv7 is listed in the Tier-2 support package sets list.
The same is true for FreeBSD:12:armv6 .

https://www.freebsd.org/platforms/ and
are, of course, not updated so far. (12.0 is not released yet and may be
nothing is changing in the status.)

It may be that the FreeBSD Core Team has not yet covered this for
12.0 or that it waits to see how the release goes for the potential
status changes before declaring a status changed. (So I may be
asking this too early.)

Just curious.

Good to see that there are pkg builds for powerpc64 these
days:  FreeBSD:12:powerpc64 and FreeBSD:11:powerpc64 are
listed in the Tier-2 support package sets list as well.

Technically the reported lists are from: pkg0.isc.freebsd.org
