Adam Heath didn't like Bart Trojanowski's ideas about how it should be
done. Bart has done a quick implementation of his ideas so that we have
anything to actually work with until Adam's solution is put into dpkg.
When it comes to machines, it's not like we have any lack of machines
currently. But it would be good to have one donated to the project, that
means I can stop pestering amd to lend it to me permanently for debian
porting work (currently it is just "well, some months and perhaps a couple
of months more"). :)
The reason for not much progress is that there seems to be all of 3-4
people caring enough to put in any work at all on the port.
