not at all ! The weather icons are a bit misleading (this is one reason
why I wasn't such a big fan of these), one has to look at the figures.
"Storm" is indicated for the "some" category, that is packages that are
not installable on *some* architecture. There are 1449 of these, but
1440 of them are architecture=all, and only 9 of them are
architecture-specific. The issue of architecture=all packages that
are not installable on some architecture can IMHO not be solved with
our current setup which makes architectures=all available on every
There is only one package in the "each" category, and this is a false
positive due to multiarch: lib32nss-mdns, which exists only on amd64
(this is why it shows up in the each category) and depends on an i386
package, which is deliberate in this case.
