If your package has a bug affecting mips, login to casals and fix it. If your package has a bug affecting m68k, login to kullervo and fix it. If you're going to claim that you don't have the knowledge to investigate and fix difficult problems, perhaps you should reconsider whether you are able to maintain your packages? I'm sure the box admins will happily set up a chroot wrapper for d-i work if you ask them nicely. Scott -- Who is sick of this "I don't have an m68k box to fix my bug" excuse.
