Did I miss a plan or was there no real plan written down?
I'm especially thinking of some kind of milestones and deadlines about
the nptl transition and the buildd kernel problems.
AFAIK the nptl transition is currently being tested, though what are the
remaining pieces and how long will the remaining steps take?
Some of the buildd kernels still cause segfaults, it would be good to
have an idea what's been done for them and how long you estimate it to
take to solve them.
I also like to include a small list of packages that were updated to fix
an RC bug (in testing), but are currently failing to build on hppa (even
if they also fail on other arches):
