are you saying if i wish to have APUS included, potato will be delayed by it ?
What about just just making an apus lha archive containing all needed stuff,
and sort of include it unofficialy ?

No, the apus stuff, beside the kernel and amiboot, should be exactly the same
as the amiga/m68k stuff. That's way i cced it here, since someone on this list
wrote the amiga/m68k stuff, and people on debian-powerpc are surely not aware
of the amiga stuff.
Anyway, thanks for the reply, i will have a look at debian-floppies.
