Bits from the Debian GNU/kFreeBSD porters

Hello, Debian world!

This is a status update for the Debian GNU/FreeBSD port[1].
Compared to previous status mail [2], this port now consists
of two architectures: kfreebsd-i386 and kfreebsd-amd64.
Currently we focus mainly on kfreebsd-i386.


 * We have uptodate toolchain and most of the core Debian packages
   are in good shape.

 * An unofficial buildd is up and running for both kfreebsd-i386 and
   kfreebsd-amd64, buildd logs for kfreebsd-i386 are available at [3].

 * There is a DD-accessible porting machine running kfreebsd-i386.

 * For kfreebsd-i386, 80% packages have been built, 75% are up-to-date.
   See [4], [5].

 * We want to be in official archive, see #369797,

We need your help

  * as ftpmaster, could you please take a look at #369797.

  * as package maintainer, could you please look at BTS
    whether there is a kfreebsd submission and integrate it.
    In many cases, it is sufficient to (auto)update config.sub/config.guess
    or use recent libtool. See [6].

  * as NMUer, please could you look at kfreebsd submission in BTS (in addition
    to usual translations).

Of course, you can also verify whether your package builds [3]
and/or use porting machine. We would also appreciate hosting a shell server and/or donate hardware for kfreebsd-amd64.
Currently we are thinking about releasing etch based snapshot
as we have reasonable subset of etch packages [5].
