The details here is that aurel32 wrote a git branch to add
architecture configurability in dak and hard-code a list of
"arches-in-sid-dpkg" in such a configuration file. ftp-master
understandably didn't want to have to manually copy the tables from
dpkg to dak whenever they changed. I briefly looked at using an
auto-byhand script to automate this, but didn't yet get around to
working on implementing anything.
