Re: Bits (Nybbles?) from the Vancouver release team meeting

Ok, I think I understand.  Suppose that we have an arch that does have

Who's downloading it, if there's no hardware to run it on?

All the stuff is on scc; how do we transfer it back?  Will it be easy,
or a major obstacle?

Stuff'll be transferred from scc to ftp.d.o once it gets enough mirror usage; that's awkward, and will probably be done in daily, half-gig stages over two weeks or so, but it's not a major obstacle. There's no indication that it will actually happen though; amd64'll probably just be assumed to be popular enough as soon as it's in the archive, and as far as other architectures are concerned, even powerpc isn't remotely near popular enough to qualify.
