i386/x86_64 very closely ( prolly in sync ). This does depend on
hardware availability. At the moment we have 2 cores churning out the
_entire_ IA64 stuff. And we dont really have failover capability. So if
someone has IA64 h/w around that they want to donate, it would be much

err ? There will be a 5.1 IA64 release within 2 to 3 weeks of
i686/x86_64 going out to the mirrors. We have IA64 availability within
the buildsystem and tracking buildqueues.
