The first problem is the worst. Currently only Frans Pop and I do
on it. Frans only does the Debian-Installer part and I simply have
enough time to do the rest. The s390 architecture is quite
anything else, so it needs several specialized packages to work and
they need lasting attention. So if anyone wants to help (especially
Debian developers) for the continuity of this port please speak up.
I'd like to help; my time has become much more limited than during
previous release cycles, though, and my access to modern zSeries
hardware has also become more limited.
I can test installation, but on nothing anywhere near a full
complement of device types, and I can make recommendations and
amendments to a fair number of the sysconfig shell scripts and the
shell scripts in the d-i packages. And given the pressures of my day
job I can't really guarantee that I will be able to respond to any
specific item in a timely fashion.
I wish I could do more.
