Non. *to these* architectures: it implies that Debian is ported to all architectures the Linux kernel is ported to. And I maintain that "Following close behind" *in that context* means that the latter is the consequence of the former. As you see, I can cut hair, too. I'm even very good at this. My main point is: please have the original text changed before asking to change translations. I will not move from that stance. debian-l10n-english is your friend.
