Hmmm, ok. What's the story with source for bo-updates?
Obviously changelog and rules changes are required, so a new source
upload would probably be in order too. Can we have a standard rule
to produce a back-ported package, so that the non-i386 people
can do it too? Or since Debian has never formally been released
on non-i386, doesn't it matter? Or does any of this matter ? :-)
