If you have a patch for a package which has not been ported to amd64 yet
then please post that patch to this mailing list (and possibly also to 
the Debian Bug Tracking System). The patched package can then be tested 
and eventually be uploaded to the amd64 archive on alioth. However, 
more than 97% of all Debian packages are already available from that
