Uh, sure. But that's not the point; right now, there's no single place that lists up all architecture-specific bugs, and it's hard to do so automatically. Which is a problem, since at times, it could be interesting to go through all arch-specific bugs. Sure, one could go through wanna-build's list of failed builds, and check each and every package for bugreports; but that is a very tedious thing to do, and as such, I don't usually do so. It would be a nice thing if architecture-specific bugs could be identified in an easy way, such as through a tag. -- Wouter Verhelst Debian GNU/Linux -- http://www.debian.org Nederlandstalige Linux-documentatie -- http://nl.linux.org "An expert can usually spot the difference between a fake charge and a full one, but there are plenty of dead experts." -- National Geographic Channel, in a documentary about large African beasts.
