Hey, don't blame me for you not knowing stuff ;-)

Debian Edu has it's own instance of dak, the debian archive suite, running on 
ftp.skolelinux.org, where we can upload packages, which are used in our 
cd+dvd builds. 

There we have the suites etch-test and etch, and lenny-test and lenny. Uploads 
go to etch-test or lenny-test (depending whether you set "unstable" (for 
lenny-test) or "terra" (for etch, thats the codename of our Etch release) and 
are than manually moved by the ftpmasters to etch or lenny.

This allows us testing of lenny builds, even if your packages are not yet in 
Debian lenny.

Ok, important was probably not right. But I consider "minor" wrong as well :) 
It's a normal bug in Debian, that some architectures are not as well 
supported as others. But I wouldn't call this minor, as one selling argument 
of Debian is, that we support all archs equally well.
