Perhaps you noticed that
a) currently some services of Debian are delayed so there was
no chance to ask for this stuff since two weeks
b) Zenaan is not yet a developer and might be unsure how to
works this out (might need some help?)
c) For instance there is DeMuDi which is busy to reintegrate
their backport and thus there is no reason to push back
people who start outside.

Please read the relevant threads about the term "Custom Debian Distribution".

I keep my opinion that it is Debian's problem or more precisely the problem
of the maintainers of a package if not all architectures are supported by
a certain software. _Debian_ want's to support 11 architectures, so
it is a Debian problem.
