Ah OK, I hadn't properly appreciated that there were still hurdles.

I did set up an 'arm things that need doing' page at the now-defunct
armlinux.org, but it would be long out of date even if it was still there.

I grep the RC bugs list that get's posted weekly for 'arm' from time to
time, but something smarter than that would be useful. The problem with that
list is that there are lots of useful things that don't have much to do with
Debian itself so I'm not sure they belong in the Dewbian BTS (unsupported
architectures and hardware for example). Still such an index would be handy...

OK - thanx for the comments. I'll see what help is on offer/can be extracted.
