Re: state of mipsen cross toolchains

I'm sorry, my previous mail contained a very misleading typo. Where I
wrote "crossbuild-essential-mips", I actually meant
"crossbuild-essential-mipsel". No, I'm not trying to get "mips" back.

Due to this typo, your answer does not answer any of my questions. I'm
actually interested in the fate of the remaining release mipsen
architectures. Or maybe I'm missing plans to remove all mipsen as
release architectures?

It's great that you coordinated it with YunQiang Su. However
coordinating the development of cross toolchains with debian-cross would
seem to be a fairly obvious thing to do, no? Especially if your changes
render cross toolchains unusable for months.
