Hmm, could it affect some sparc[64]-only packages in a bad way (e. g.,

E. g., silo is "Architecture: sparc sparc64".

Source packages which no longer build binary packages on any
architecture get reported as cruft which we clean up every few days:

I removed several more packages that might also be needed on sparc64 (I
don't have an idea what is needed there). Check the removal log around
that time.

The packages still needed should probably be uploaded to the sparc64
section of the Debian ports archive.

That's funny, thanks.

The list looks not too big:

afbinit 1.0-4.1
silo 1.4.14+git20120819-2
silo-installer 1.30
sparc-utils 1.9-4
xserver-xorg-video-sunffb 1:1.2.2-1

Best wishes,
