hppa in danger of being ignored for testing migration and eventual removal


There appeared to be some porting progress right after the release, but
that seems to have stalled. The port is having trouble keeping up with
building and has some major flaws.

HPPA is clearly the worst at keeping up among the release
architectures[0], especially considering that mipsel has some temporary
issues that are being worked on. This is causing large problems with

With this in mind, and to ensure that everyone knows where they stand
with regards to HPPA and squeeze, clarification on the following would
be appreciated.

* What is the status of the different porting efforts?

* Has progress been made regarding the thread library migration?

* Has progress been made regarding proper java support?

* The machines that host the buildds still seem to have a very
unreliable kernel. Is there any update on this?

* The debian-installer dailies that are now built again, but seem to
fail to build most of the time. Is there any particular reason for this?

Please make sure to get satisfying answers to all of the above questions
in the next couple of weeks (by the 11th of May) or we will as a first
step ignore hppa for testing migration purposes. If you need some more
time, please let us know, but we're keen to ensure that this doesn't
drag on too long :)
