I have not personally created a good enough binary on amd64 yet, and I 
have been caught up with too many other things since the new year and 
the move of the amd64 machine I was working on.

Has anyone got a 64-bit binary ready that would be good enough as a 
64-bit release (John Harisson was hosting one)? Hosting it couldn't be 
easier: Reprepro will automatically figure out the architecture (if the 
deb is done properly) and will put it in the right place.

You can have access to the repo from a 32-bit machine:

In the /etc/apt/sources.list

deb http://something - stands for the standard architecture

deb-src http://something - stands for the source ARCHITECTURE, since 
source is considered a different architecture in DEB repositories.

deb-amd64 http://something - amd64 architecture on i386 machines

deb-i386 http://something - i386 on amd64 machines.

This is especially useful with apt-mirror for mirroring repos.

If by "hosting" you mean hosting the nightly build or so, how about 
target architecture? Building for amd64 on an i386 by getting all the 
necessary amd64 libs?

I thought the only problem was that some things didn't work yet on 
amd64, not the actual hosting.
