Re: armel port moving to debian archive

It looks like I didn't manage to write "bits from armel porters"
mail before FOSDEM, so I'll just post a more iformal update now:

Now you can search for armel mirrors from:

It's now fully migrated and most people can drop debian-ports.org from
their sources.list

Testing migration has started (thanks again to everyone involved!),
but getting a fully working testing/armel is going to take a while.
There is things like lenny d-i beta1 that are more important to get
done. Hopefully we can get armel to d-i beta2. Official buildd's and
developer machine(s) are being worked on as well.

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