Re: Porter roll call for Debian Stretch


  I am an active porter for the following architectures and I intend
  to continue this for the lifetime of the Stretch release (est. end
  of 2020):

  For mips, mipsel and mips64el, I
  - test most packages on this architecture
  - run a Debian testing or unstable system on port that I use regularly
  - fix toolchain issues
  - triage arch-specific bugs
  - fix arch-related bugs
  - triage d-i bugs
  - test d-i regularly
  - fix d-i bugs/issues
  - maintain buildds
  - maintain/provide hardware for (or assist with) automated tests on ci.d.n,
    jenkins.d.n (etc.)
  - run other automated tests outside the Debian QA services
     Run daily build test
     Run autopkgtest
  - ...

  I am a DD

  I believe the ports *are* ready to have -fPIE/-pie enabled by default.
