Well. Yes. Of course you can upload. They just get rejected. :)

Not good. What is missing to get this fixed?

Well There are two mirror changes. I suspect that scc will need to become operational, before amd64 is added to ftp-master. The scc change is a big change and certainly has te potential to break things, including offical mirrors. So this change will likely be delayed as long as possible. Until amd64 is made an official architecture it would be nonsensical to allow dinstall (or is it katie?) to accept packages for amd64.

> If not, is there any upload queue dedicated at them?

Well. Yes (again). But only about 5 people are allowed to upload there,
plus one script that syncs the source from Debian. So you dont need to
upload there.

So, I guess I have no choice but building packages in a i386 chroot, right?

I would assume that it was fairly ovbious that the binary upload would need to be for an offical arcitecture, which amd64 is not (yet). In fact, it is probably not reccomended
to be developing under a system that is not offically a debian system.
(Although amd64 is a bit of a special case. I would not reccomend doing development for
debian on an ubuntu system for example. Too much possibility of conflict.)
