Document the new ALLARCHES process.
Per the latest council meeting, it is now possible to request a stabilization on all arches at once (for architecture-independent packages). This commit documents the new keyword and process on the "Keywording" page.

+ Simultaneous stabilization on all architectures
+ </title>
+ <body>
+ <p>
+ If you maintain an architecture-independent package (data files,
+ icons, pure Perl,...) then you may request that your
+ package be stabilized on all arches at once. To do this<d />when
+ you are filing the stabilization bug<d />please add the keyword
+ <c>ALLARCHES</c> in addition to <c>STABLEREQ</c> and CC the
+ arches that you would like to stabilize.
+ </p>
+ <p>
+ The arch teams, when encountering the <c>ALLARCHES</c> keyword,
+ should perform their usual set of tests on a single convenient
+ architecture. Then, if everything works, stabilize not only the
+ arch that was used during testing, but also all of the other
+ arches in CC on the bug. Afterwards, the CC field can be cleared
+ and the bug closed if appropriate.
+ </p>
