its not the first time that I'm running into that problem: A package
that is Architecture: all depends from packages Architecture: any.
These dependencies are not available on all architectures and thus the
package does not migrate to testing. The package paleomix is an example
for this. I had a similar situation with metaphlan2 which was solved
by manual intervention of ftpmaster. I'm just wondering whether we
could find a better clue than forcing people to do manual intervention.
While simply setting the Architecture: all package to any that
intervention would not be necessary but that's simply wrong.
Unfortunately I currently see no better solution and wanted to bring
this topic up here.
