+1 from my side too. I guess I'm one of those armel hobbyists and I
could test the software even on real hardware.

I also think that the opinions of the kernel team / Ben are crucial if
we want to support ARM in the future. Otherwise I would expect that
supporting ARM scales pretty well and that it mainly requires more time
for testing the software.

Speaking of the security team and release team, what about the ftp team
and the upcoming switch to Wheezy-LTS. Raphaël wrote [1] that the switch
would be easy according to one of the ftp masters. Is there anything
that we should take care of / coordinate with the ftp team before April,
