These tags are meant to signal that particular bugs are architecture-specific. Maintainers are encouraged to mark any and all architecture-specific bugs with the below tag, whether or not a fix is available; this will allow porters to get a better overview of the state of their port.

For architecture-specific Debian installer bugs, also add the architecture name as a usertag for the debian-boot@lists.debian.org user.

When filing architecture-specific bugs, please also ensure that you add an X-Debbugs-CC field listing each of the appropriate porter lists.

The generic format of these tags is:


The port mailing list name is usually 'debian-$architecture@lists.debian.org' or 'debian-$archfamily@lists.debian.org'. Examples of the latter include:


There are some exceptions to these rules:


For both kfreebsd-i386 and kfreebsd-amd64 (aka GNU/kFreeBSD) please add the usertag kfreebsd in addition to the architecture names.


For x32 the list does not exist so you should X-Debbugs-CC: debian-amd64@lists.debian.org instead.
