Okay about the error form buildd for sparc64 ...

WARNING: mirror 'http://ftp.ports.debian.org/debian-ports' appears to
be invalid; skipping

That's done by line 80 of gen-sources.list.udeb from utils. It's
checking if the udeb components are available in the repo ...

https://anonscm.debian.org/cgit/d-i/debian-installer.git/tree/build/uti
l/gen-sources.list.udeb

What's the deference with ports from the Releases file that is called?

http://ftp.debian.org/debian/dists/sid/Release
http://ftp.ports.debian.org/debian-ports/dists/sid/Release

Contents-udeb-amd64 vs our architecture from contrib, main, non-free?
So we just need the generate Contents-udeb-{arch} files to succeed it?

http://ftp.debian.org/debian/dists/sid/main/
http://ftp.port...

s.debian.org/debian-ports/dists/sid/main/


But maybe I am wrong.

Thanks,
