“First officially released with Debian 6.0 as a technology preview and

Trying the navigate to, e.g., a downloadable netinst CD, I indeed do

…and maybe somewhere early in the installation manual (for people that
never visit the port page), for example at:


Or, it could also be envisioned to split the lists of architectures on:


…into something like “amd64, armel, i386 …, technology preview:
kfreebsd-i386, kfreebsd-amd64”?
