If there isn't any work in progress to make it work on other architectures, and porting it isn't trivial, I'd say yes, make it arch: i386. If it is supposed to work on other architectures, but at the moment it does not, or there are people working on porting it, then leaving it arch: any is a better idea, methinks. > And secondly, how to deal which packages, which ar binary indep, but > depend on a package, which is only available on one platform? Leave the > Arch-field on "all" or set it also to "i386"? Leave it arch: all, you can never know when your dependencies get suddenly ported to all kinds of systems.
