Bug#540341: RFH: apt-cross -- retrieve, build and install libraries for cross-compiling
I request assistance with maintaining the apt-cross package.
For my reasons, see:
For background, see:
and for what needs to be done, see:
The main issue with apt-cross is already filed as a bug:
Those who help with apt-cross should also help with emdebian-tools and
vice-versa. See bug # 540333
The package description is:
apt-cross is intended to make it easier to locate, download, install and
update your cross-compiling libraries, directly from the Debian archives.
By default, apt-cross uses /etc/apt/sources.list to find the current Debian
package file for the architecture specified (or dpkg-cross default) and in
the suite specified (default is unstable). Alternatively, you can specify
a different mirror. Downloaded files can be passed directly to dpkg-cross
using the -b or -i commands to apt-cross.
