True, presentation was done targetting already familiar people with
the subject, people that had already read the specification.
There has been much talking on multiarch the later past 4-5 years
and it is time of no more talking but design and implement a stable
system capable to cope with bi, tri-arches and for the same price,
have an environment to bootstrap Debian derivatives from source, even
supporting cross-compiling (this later statement it is not fully
covered on the current specification)
Personally, I liked the feedback we had from the audience and this
audience is the people that it is able to make this possible and we
have agreed that it can be a very nice, elegant solution for such
So, please, lets
* Move multiarch related issues just to firstname.lastname@example.org
* Do not flame, just development and testing concepts
