Hello everyone,

I have a package which I would like to host on CRAN. The package is at https://github.com/bnosac/golgotha
The package only builds on 64bit however because the package uses R package reticulate which requires a python library called torch which does not build on 32 bit platforms.
So installation only works using INSTALL_opts = "--no-multiarch"

How do you specify this to the CRAN maintainers that this is the way it should be set up on CRAN such that it only is built for 64bit systems.
