I very much appreciate the vote of confidence, but in reality we rely on porters (or at least people who know a lot more and care about a port) for stuff like this. If porters are not involved in d-i, you will see support degenerate very fast. The minimum help we need is people doing regular installation tests and telling us when there are regressions. We also very, very often need help maintaining port-specific stuff, like in this case. There is no way 3 people (the "d-i core developers", of who only one even has a hppa box) are going to support 12 architectures and all their subarchitectures in full.
