Debian-news is about one simple thing - news about Debian GNU/Linux and the top free distributions based on Debian GNU/Linux.

The FreeBSD-based ports are sorted in with the distributions for the various processor architectures Debian supports. So far, only 32-bit Intel and AMD64 chips are supported, designated kfreebsd-i386 and kfreebsd-amd64, respectively. Both are still undergoing development, and not yet ready for installation.
