Repository question

view story

http://crunchbang.org – Hi! Just installed Waldorf x64 a few day's ago. Pretty good one Just one question. Upon setting up I found out, that Waldorf's repository index is much lighter than Statler's, and no checkbox in synaptic's Debian software tab is checked and even uncheckable. Nor I can change download server. Is it because of Debian's new repository redirector service, or because Waldorf is still in testing phase? Also, why there's no i386 support by default? (HowTos)
