So that we could cope with the increasing size of the archive.

The first pass justifications we have are at


If you're already satisfied that kfreebsd is a "valuable goal" you should
work on it, not expect anyone else to.

There are people who would like to repackage all of Debian optimised for
their particular processor, or without Gnome libraries, and all sorts
of other things. That's fine -- if that's what they want, they should
do it. But to actually have it be in the archive and on the mirrors,
it should pass some basic minimum standards of being useful.

What would be your reaction if I said "Most of your comments related to
possible problems that do not concern you." ?
