Upstream explicitly confirmed that only amd64 is supported (for ncbi-vdb
and sra-sdk). I perfectly agree that it would be an optimal situation
if also i386 would be supported but for the moment the unavailability
for this architecture should not block the migration to testing.
So I filed #840683 to remove the unsupported architectures which was
just closed thanks to quick ftpmasters. :-)
Am I correct now that a force-hint is apropriate now?
