The release notes use the long architecture names 'AMD64' and 'Intel
x86' for our architectures 'amd64' and 'i386'.  The name 'AMD64'
sometimes confuses users with Intel x86-64 chips, who instead download
the installer or CD images for ia64.  This is a waste of time and
bandwidth for all concerned.  The name 'Intel x86' is also inaccurate
in that the i386 architecture runs on 32-bit x86 processors from many

The long names should be changed in coordination with www.debian.org
