Yeap. I proposed some solutions to that problem, but sadly didn't
get any reply yet.

I agree. Also, Nikita's documentation entries of dpkg-cross point to
debian-embedded@l.d.o, so it's a de-facto starting point for every new
voluteer who has tried dpkg-cross.

I also proposed some patches for dpkg-cross, and some general thoughts
about architectures, especially about the conflict between the internal
dpkg-cross tables and the dpkg-architecture tables.

I'm working on w32 cross compiling.

Sadly, Nikita was the only person who responded to my proposals in that

However, first I need to understand it myself, which isn't possible
without answers to my mails.

I don't think that a wiki is good for discussions. For that purpose,
mailing lists are very practical.

Maybe you mean decisions and summaries instead?
