Bug#664257: multiarch tuples are not documented/defined

Package: general
Severity: serious
Tags: wheezy, sid

While we strive to get multiarch ready for squeeze, there is currently nothing to point to what the multiarch tuples actually mean, neither on the Debian side nor on some kind of standards side like the FHS or LSB. This has to be documented on the Debian side, and better be incorporated into standards like the FHS or LSB.

The current state is http://wiki.debian.org/Multiarch/Tuples, deriving from http://wiki.debian.org/Multiarch/TuplesAbandoned. An email to debian-ports didn't get any feedback. From my point of view such a wiki page should be self-contained and be usable as a reference for upstream projects. My current concern is that upstream builds of GCC and binutils are currently broken and patch submissions to GCC are on hold until such a definition is available at least on the Debian side.
