If I remember correctly it was about a year ago that I talked on this
list about Debian/MIPS. At that time Ralf was still interested in
creating a Debian based distribution. Unfortunately there was zero
response from the list and so Ralf started to move to RH. And trailing
behind the SGI/MIPS people and the rest of the Linux/MIPS comunity.
Today Debian is again in the situation to have to play catch-up
with a RH based distribution.
