Installation broken on Debian Testing/Sid

Can you just please plain provide with native i386 and amd64 binary packages ?
The current packages are just plain annoying. I can't even install it on my box.

rrs@priyasi:/var/tmp$ sudo apt install ./crossover_16.2.5-1.deb

Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

Have you tried

sudo apt-get -f install


Add 32 bit support if you've not done so then try to install.

dpkg --add-architecture i386 && apt-get update

Still won't install on Debian Sid

Dependencies can't be resolved

I have no problems on Debian Sid.
