Good morning

Most of the time I only read on this list and so I've done with this 
discussion. But sometimes I dare to write something and suggest somthing ;-)

It seems that a lot of people discuss this topic on a fairly theoretic base 
which I think wouldn't be necessary if one could see which architectures pass 
which condition. Then you could discuss about specific items and not just 
theoretically (which is not by definition bad).

I think the work for such an architecture list isn't that heavy and would even 
do it myself but I'm just a user and "promoter" of Debian and don't know the 
sites where I find the information.


Anyway thx for your great work I use every day
