Bug#396121: www.debian.org: More information on the developers information about the testing package

Package: www.debian.org
Severity: wishlist


I would like to suggest that on the developers information page
for the testing distribution [1] that under the FAQ titled

My package is stalled because it's out of date on some
architecture. What do I do?

aome more information on explicitly dropping an architecture, rather
than just dealing with a FTBFS, be added.

A suggestion:

"If a developer has explicitly dropped the architecture from the build
list, a bug will need to be filed against the meta-package
ftp.debian.org requesting removal of the dropped architecture's
packages from the unstable archive.  Generally the relevant porting
list should be informed as a matter of courtesy."
