Would the following layout be ok:


The apt/sources.list then would be

deb http://debian-amd64.alioth.debian.org/debina-pure64 sid main

If you are in the debian-amd64 group you can find the archive at


and can just create the subdirs you need there. Since pure64 is only
one arch you can use (or adapt) the mini-dinstall package to manage
the archive. I already talked to the alioth admins asking if its ok to
run dinstall to manage the archive for biarch and they said thats
ok. So I guess you can go right ahead with mini-dinstall.

When setting up the directory structure take care to give the group
write permission so everyone in the group can fix things if needed.

I suggest moving the existing files all into a "debian-biarch" subdir
to make it distinct what belongs to where.
