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 [1],[2] 
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 
kernel soon

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?
