The basic source of information for amd64 archive and mirror questions is


However, please note that this structure is not yet fully in place.

An announcement will be made when the move to the new host has been 
completed and the structure has been set up.

There will only be one official amd64 archive. That archive will follow 
the unpatched Debian stable, testing and unstable distributions.

The current amd64/gcc-4.0 archive will be continued in a separated 
project to sort out any remaining issues for Debian's planned move to 
gcc-4.0 for etch. Now that gcc-4.0 has been officially released, 
the gcc-4.0 archive will be recompiled from scratch and reuploaded 
to a different location. Details will be announced as soon as this 
has been completed.
