I wish that these type of messages would be crossposted to the relevant
port-specific lists. People who are busy with porting often don't have
time to follow much more than their port-specific list; e.g. I only scan
debian-devel once every 1-2 weeks.
I've crossposted this to -alpha at least, as it's relevant there (Chris?)
