File names in the Debian archive: *.deb vs *_i386.deb
I've noticed that when I build a Debian package, I get a filename for
the arch-specific parts of the package named something like
"hello_1.3-14.3_i386.deb". However, in the Debian FTP archive, the
same package is named "hello_1.3-14.3.deb" (with no "_i386").
Why is this? Are package files normally renamed after upload by the
FTP archive maintainers?
