I'm the kernel maintainer for a number of ARM boards that run debian-arm
and don't require hardware mods first:
These three boards run 2.6 kernels, boot standalone, and have run
debian-arm for a couple of years now. They're all ~200 MHz machines,

Alternatively, what packages need some help getting over the top? I'd
be happy to take a look at them so as to get them moving again,
especially if that gets me onboard as a DD. But I hesitate to be the
offical package maintainer long-term because kernel work keeps me pretty
