Hello everybody,

have there been progresses on that question ?

In light of the last messages in this thread, which suggest that more than 250
packages should be converted from architecture-independant to
architecture-dependant in order to solve the problem, I wonder if it is useful
to start adding 'Multi-Arch: foreign' to 'Architecture: all' packages.

(I ask because it was suggested for mime-support in #695357)
