I'm planning to purchase one for development, and packaging tests.

Currently (at least) you can only buy a new Raspberry Pi from one of the two approved suppliers.

From the FAQ (http://www.raspberrypi.org/faqs):

"Where can I buy one?

You can buy the Raspberry Pi through Premier Farnell/Element 14 (http://www.farnell.com/) and RS Components (http://pi.rsdelivers.com/). Both distributors sell all over the world."

Having said that, quite a few people are reporting long delivery times from RS, so I'd recommend Element 14.

Does anybody run the dedicated debian port for it and also a chrooted
environment with the one of the armel or armhf ports ?

I run the "Raspian" Wheezy armhf port, but not in a chroot. armel on the Raspberry Pi is the standard Debian one, with a custom kernel and a few extra bits of software supplied.

It also might be worth you having a quick look through the forums (http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3) to see what successes and problems people have encountered (including the Français forum).

Thanks in advance, cordially, xavier grave
