Hi folks,

I've just pushed a patch to the adduser package in Ubuntu to mark it
Multi-Arch: foreign, in compliance with the plan for multiarch described at
<https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MultiarchSpec>.  This package has various library
reverse dependencies, such as libsane, so this is needed for full multiarch
support in wheezy (in particular, for wine).

Steve Langasek                   Give me a lever long enough and a Free OS
Debian Developer                   to set it on, and I can move the world.
