Nice talk guys!
Ok, regarding the TODO phase, I have some things to add:
* basically mass-bug filing has been mostly done -as you can see in ,
some packages do remain, but bugs have not been filed as there is no clear
solution, eg binutils or lintian or ruby1.x until the issue with the gnu
triplet/quad has been fixed.
* Now that squeeze has been released, I plan to increase the severity of all
armhf-related bug reports to at least "serious".
* If bugs are not fixed in a while, I think we are allowed to do porter-NMUs,
though I'm unsure of that as armhf is not yet a supported architecture.
* Also, work on the debian-installer has been resumed and Hector has created a
git tree so all work on armhf will go there and we will hopefully merge with
the main d-i tree in due time. For the record, d-i boots and works until the
point it installs the base system :)
* kernel work is progressing and I believe we will have a recent working
So it seems we will have plenty of stuff to do during the Cambridge Sprint, I
think it's time we update the wiki page as well with stuff to do, Hector, mind
if I put this list in the agenda?
