I read the policy, I know what it says.

I only ask because Jeroen asked me this (Jeroen I hope
posting it is ok, I doesn't want that someone thinks I
haven't read the policy :)

P-a-s maintainers: Please add yacpi as above:

%yacpi: i386 amd64 ia64 # acpi is i386/amd64/ia64 specific

You mean dropping the architectures no longer built because
acpi isn't
supported on those archs, I assume.

Please also try to make your package actually FTBFS on
systems not
supporting acpi, if that's possible, besides limiting the
line as you've already done.
