Since there were several attempts to port the Debian system to
the IA64 architecture, I've created another architectur specific
list for this architecture. As usual the list is called like the
architecture, namely firstname.lastname@example.org. Subscription
is handled as usual by using the -REQUEST method. The subscription
page on the webserver should be up-to-date during the next few
For processing: It may be a good idea to start the port "somewhere"
and create an apt-get/dpkg-ftp'able area outside of ftp.debian.org.
When the port begings to stabilize and a stable basis of packages
is ready request a new architecture to be added to ftp.debian.org.
Without having spoken to flo recently, I'm sure he would be glad
to donor space for this port to rfc822.org as well. The mips
ports are there already.
