I'll absolutely take blame for not trying harder to contact more porters
than just you on IRC. On the flip side, I don't think I'm entirely off
my rocker in thinking that maybe porters with direct commit access to the
packaging might have cared that eglibc has been FTBFS in experimental for
four and a half months. This isn't new. And, as we've discovered today,
most of the fixes required were really quite trivial (though we're not
quite done yet).
Anyhow. Arguments are cheap and, generally, pointless. Hopefully Petr
has some clever ideas to get us past the last kfreebsd/glibc snag, and
I'll have another stab at it tomorrow if this flu subsides and lets me
As I said before, I'm sorry for not coordinating this better outside of
