This isn't directed towards you, but a general remark is that all the
talk about dropping arm as a release architecture over the last couple
of years (for reasons that seem mostly beyond my control), and the
resulting uncertainty has definitely made most of my motivation to
work on the Debian ARM port disappear.
I don't think anyone enjoys working on a project that is in a
'maybe-sort-of-almost-dropped' state pretty much all the time.
Maybe the ARM port should just be dropped to have it over with.
