Oh I didn't look at this page.  There are some machine for mips/mipsel.

I would like to login to mips/mipsel machine to check glibc.  BTW,
it's nice that mips/mipsel machine recorded as "public machine" for
the benefit of all debian developers.

I hope if we release an architecture as public release, at least one
machine on the architecture should be enbale to login for all debian
developers...  If you get a message like "This package does not work
on this architecture", and you can't login such architecture, how to
deal with...?
