armel port moving to debian archive


Now that AJ has set up the Debian archive to accept armel packages,
we are starting to move packages your regular Debian mirrors around
the world. Add the following to your sources.list:

deb http://ftp.xx.debian.org/debian/ sid main

where 'xx' is a country code of a mirror carrying armel port. Mirrors
cloning the "typical" or a hand-selected list of architectures will
not have armel. Currently the archive only has "dpkg" included,
if everything goes well, the migration should finish by the end
of the week. During this week, things might be more broken than

The unreleased archive still has 4 packages, so you might want to
keep it o your sources.list: python-numeric + libhdf4
(have been waiting for gfortran transition, should now be clear)
subversion (#453166) and freetds (#441736 I failed to convince libtool
to work...).

This is only the beginning for armel port inside Debian, now we need
start integrating armel with regular buildd's, testing, provide
porter access machine, kill bugs faster than regressions appear etc.
Much fun ahead todo :)


"rm -rf" only sounds scary if you don't have backups
