Not quite. We have part of the infrastructure for building cross-toolchains
with Nikita's patches. Nikita, I realise these are available on your server,
but it would be good if we had them on emdebian.org, along with our older
stable cross-toolchains. If I could persuade you to look after those and
keep them up to date that would be great. Allen can sign you up, and I can
tell you where I've got to so far.

The two main developers have been on another project for the last 6 months
that used OE rather than emdebian (because OE was finished enough to use,
Emdebian isn't) so not much has happened. Both of us are back on the case now.

(I'm just reading 6 months of this list!)

Plenty of people are interested, but until the basic tools are working and
documented it is difficult to get involved with simplerstufflike
package-porting. We have the expertise to sort that here, but of course we
are all busy people. I'd like Nikita to get more involved as he has clearly
become the debian-cross-toolchain man :-)
