fine, then we have two projects competing for the same manpower.
Kinda silly, isn't it?

What are you trying to do?  How long do you think we can continue to
use b-f?  What will come after it?  When do you foresee that

show us some live signs from b-f, like success reports from the Hurd,
like working hardware autodetection, like autopartition working.

see how silly that statement is?

It is a known limitation of d-i that it _currently_ is i386 only.
Most of the code is not arch dependent at all, it is normal
non-lowlevel C (if such a beast exists).  I am going to get it working
on SPARC if nobody beats me to it sometime during the next month or
