It will be great, if you guys can put up a short document on how to setup
a pure64 Debian from scratch. I have seen the howto on alioth, may be if
you can update that to include pure64 info, it will be really great. I
think there are more people interested in pure64 port right now than a biarch solution.

This is three e-mails from John and me a while ago; I think they are still true.
I do recommend using the alioth pure64 archive in addition to John's one.
