I've done that for mips and mipsel now.

mipsel/cobalt currently doesn't build because it needs the pwgen-udeb
that just entered the archive. It has been built for mipsel already
but not yet uploaded. Should be resolved in a day or two.
I added serial-console less installs for Cobalt via SSH (password is
either preseeded or a random one shown on the LCD); tested & working.
I also rearranged the DECstation images (which were a mess) and sent a
bug report with patch to debian-cd.

This update hadn't happened on mips/mipsel because Thiemo has been
moving and I wasn't aware of -12. I've compiled this on mips and
mipsel a few days ago, made udebs and uploaded everything to the
mips/mipsel are, afaict, ready - we just need some udebs pushed to
testing but I'll send a list when beta2 comes closer.

We don't have 2.6 kernels in the archive yet but I'm currently working
on that. The 2.4 flavours work well, though.
