[GSoC Report][Week 3] Architecture Cross-Grading Support in Debian


Work has been going very well. This week marks the end of the
arm64->amd64 crossgrade. For the next few weeks, I will be focusing on
making a pre-crossgrade checker as well as generating test images for

Week 3 progress:
1. Complete second and third stage of crossgrading tool
(crossgrading/removing remaining packages)
2. Successful arm64->amd64 crossgrade!
3. Start work on creating i386->amd64 crossgrade images
(Stretch/Jessie/Buster images, different desktop environments, random
packages, crossgrading over SSH)

Goals for next week are to make more test cases and to check out how
the crossgrade tool fares with them.
