That is a good and absolutely correct point.  Our amd64 development has
basically stalled because the difficulty of maintaining it without space
on ftp.debian.org has become an impediment to progress.  At that same
time, rumor has it that no new archs will be given space because there's
some problem with being out of space, and no new solution will exist for
possibly months.

Which leads me to ask: how come m68k is given space but amd64 is not?

Seems rather backwards to me.
