Bug Description

I was reading when I noticed the following:

"Ubuntu has added arm64 as a architecture recently, but many packages fail to build on it. A full list of the packages not building are at"

First of all I noticed that the url wasn't a link, but after browsing to it I found a list of build failures for 14.04. Now that armhf and arm64 are listed on the main FTBFS page (, I wonder whether this paragraph is still necessary or whether it could be removed.

Version: 0.3.7~bzr578~ubuntu14.04.1.

You are right, we no longer need this section.

Linking to is enough because the first section of that page tells how to deal with arm64/ppc64el failures.
