Right. The problem there is that they are all for stable, and thus will
generally need updating to the unstable version before they will be
accepted. The team will be doing this.

into debian and building the new arch so it go into debian. I suppose this
is a subject for the debian-arm list though, not here.

I think that would be cool. thanx.
