Hello Luk,

Unless this has changed recently this wording is not completely
correct. Testing migration used to require that all binaries of
testing candidate architectures were in sync, i.e. built from the
same source version. It is perfectly fine to have a package only
available on i386 and amd64 e.g.

Please correct me if I am wrong.

daemontools fulfills this requirement:
ametzler@merkel:~$ dak ls daemontools
daemontools |   1:0.76-2 |      unstable | source, alpha, amd64, hurd-i386, i386, ia64, m68k, powerpc, s390, sparc

Bitney thinks otherwise, though:
daemontools is not yet built on i386: 0.76-9 vs 1:0.76-2 (missing 2 binaries:
daemontools, daemontools)

It seems to mix up the new package daemontools (binaries
daemontools-run and daemontools, version 1:0.76-2) and the old contrib
packages daemontools-installer (binary daemontools-installer, removed
from sid and lemnny, version 0.76-9 is in etch and oldstable).
