We need to stop distributing binaries without sources (including architecture-specific releases), as far as the GPl is concerned. This is simpler to organize. > b) We don't have a smart way to have "sub"ports, like i586, which falls back > to i386 at any place. Symlink farms is one solution. Hacking apt to support it is a better solution, IMHO, but that also doesn't require re-organizing everything on the ftp site. Avoiding re-organizations is a good thing, because they take lots of time (months!) if we want to avoid killing mirrors.
