Or even available on stock?
The message is: Debian does support the several available architectures.
(that is why I came to Debian (m68k support, somewhere in 1995))

The idea goes like this:
 Burn a CD for each architecture before  L.T.
 When there is a visitor with interrest in Debian
 Ask him/her to donate :-)
 Give him/her a CD
 Burn a new CD that has left the booth

It will take an investement of 10, one for each arch outside ia32,
Compact Disc Recordables (CD-Rs). That way we will known we
have an ISO image for the architecture and can show
that we support the non ia32 architectures.
(No messages on the booth "You have to wait for that arch" ;-)
