Yes, official packaging and recompiling for various archs may cause such 

Concretely, sugar-artwork-0.86 was waiting in NEW queue for ftpmaster 
approval due to being a new package name.  So it wasn't available on any 
architecture officially until some time within the last 12-24 hours (too 
lazy to calculate timezones now).

Much info can be gathered through 
and form there go to "PTS", "Pool" and "Excuses" for each of the source 

For amd64 and i386 (and for powerpc if you ask nicely) - I provide 
packages at my unofficial source at debian.jones.dk which should make 
those architectures work at all times regardless of delays in official 

My unofficial packages are carefully renumbered to ensure that when the 
official packages arrive they will replace the unofficial ones.

My unofficial packages are built from exact same sources as published 
officially - except for a few cases of workarounds, especially for the 
backports to Lenny.  All such workarounds are documented in the 

I recommend to install "apt-listchanges" and afterwards do 
"dpkg-reconfigure apt-listchanges" and enable a) showing both news and 
changes, and b) make it stop after showing them, to allow breaking if 
something alarming shows up.
