Bug#664257: multiarch tuples are not documented/defined
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.
