What kind of patches are these? - general porting issues uncovered by armeb (and not uncovered on other bigendian arches for some reason): I guess these should be immediately submitted. - things like configure scripts etc.: these are normally quite small and isolated, so I don't see a reason to not submit these. So there remain (very few?) cases where the patch is bigger (for whatever reason) - these will probably need more discussion. Even then: it's your stated goal for armeb to become a regular Debian architecture, so having your patches in the bts is one step closer to the goal. Obviously, some maintainers will not want to apply some of these patches, but a 'wontfix' bug doesn't hurt nobody... cheers -- vbi -- Computer programmers don't byte, they nibble a bit.
