Fw: debian-arm bug squashing party 13.10-15.10.2006
As mentioned below - the debian arm java situation is currently not
good. We would very much welcome any java types who could help us fix
and/or understand the problems in various java packages. Do please
spend a bit of time this weekend if you can on #debian-arm or
#debian-bugs or pick a bug and have a prod.
This page is used to coordinate notes on problems. That has a few java
More can be deduced from this list:

Subject: debian-arm bug squashing party 13.10-15.10.2006
Despite all the insanity going over voting in Debian, we are still
committed on Etch release in december. Currently the arm port has trouble
keeping up with the rest of ports.
We have a list of packages failing to build on arm, mostly at the
maybe-failed section. Most of the issues are not arm-specific, or
might just be temporary problems because some build-dep hasn't compiled
yet. But we have lots of real issues waiting for fixing as well.
Therefor, we have decided to gather 13.10.2006-15.10.2006 on #debian-arm
at irc.debian.org, ie the next weekend. This is at the same time as
the munchen BSP, so you migh consider hanging out at #debian-bugs
and following the normal BSP guidelines, to avoid overlapping
Don't let the guidelines and Debian jargon scare you - we'll
help you getting started. Even arm hardware is no longer
Other issues: Arm debian-installer port is maintained by Martin
Michlmayr, who would appreceate help in that area. The java situation
on Arm is a mess. The most prominent bug 390966  seems to be just
worked around by gcj maintainers, but the real cause and if it affects
other tools is not known..
