Maybe I missed some important part of docs, but how one is able to
install debian files with apt-get?
As an example:

Very Simple... put the following line inside the apt/sources.list


It doesn't work for i386 when amd64 path is defined in Packages file.
And doesn't work for amd64 systems when i386 path is defined.

There should be Packages file per architecture.


Yes... you are right.
I've never notice this problem.
I think that the error is in the BuildService, in particulare in the way
the Packages files is created (I suppose using dpkg-scanpackages
command)... and the place where it is stored.

I think that the developers of BuildService should be compliant to the
"Automatic Repository" defined in the following official documentation
for Debian-like distribution:

There are, of course, various way to arrange directory, but for me a
good solution can be:
- root repository (
|-- binary-i386
|-- binary-amd64
|-- source
And the Packages files must be created inside each sub-directory of main
(binary-i386, binary-amd64, source) has the official documentaion of
Debian require for apt-repositories.
