Yes, but the utherly arrogant and despreciating way in how this announcement
was made didn't leave another issue. Imagine we decided tomorrow to throw all
the i18n work out the window and decided to support only english for etch.
This is the same kind of announcement for the alternative arches.

No data on what exactly the problems where, no data on the correlation of
those problems on the proposed drastic solutions, no minutes of the meeting,
no previous announcement to involve the porters, nothing.

Yep, but even on the d-i team, it seems the work of all those non-first-tier
arches was worthless after all, and not taken in consideration.
