[GSoC Report][Week 10] Architecture Cross-Grading Support in Debian

Bonjour à tous,

Final few weeks left, just putting the finishing touches on now! Still more testing to be done, as usual.

Week 8 progress:
1. Successful crossgrade from amd64 to i386
2. Started testing crossgrading mipsel to mips64el
3. Removed elf-arch usage in the initramfs arch check hook to support Debian Stretch and below

Found a few bugs this week such as not crossgrading default login shells. Hopefully I'll find all of the glaring ones in the coming weeks. Still need to make manpages for the crossgrader and package checker, as well as update the month-old recordings of the crossgrading process to reflect the new procedures.

Kind regards,
Kevin Wu
