I asked the Debian ARM list about the status and got the following
Colin Tuckley mentioned "a few things which are not complete":
| dietlibc is still blocking several things - a new version is supposedly
| avail upstream.
| free pascal needs bootstrapping.
According to Martin Guy, there has been some progress with Ada
Some people would also like to see support for some specific devices
in lenny, but these shouldn't be regarded as blockers:
* OpenMoko. Gaudenz Steinlin says:
| Support for the openmoko could be a goal. But we probably need at least
| 2.6.32 to have a bootable kernel which supports SD cards. The 2.6.31
| upcomming 2.6.31 will contain basic support up to the point where the
| kernel boots on the phone, but the glamo driver to which the sd reader
| is connected is not yet sent upstream.
| If we have basic kernel support (including sd cards) debian-installer
| support is fairly easy to do. It's basically almost done.
* OpenRD Base and Client: no ETA but hopefully shouldn't be too much
