Summarizing after quite some more time: Things look much better. As
you all know, there was recently e.g. the kde4libs-issue, and I expect
similar issues to happen again (as the migration to the new threading
model was very recently), but hppa is mostly normal again.

We also need to get paer back as "normal" porter box (instead of
buildd as currently) (this shouldn't be troublesome in any way, just
needs to happen).

I want to say "Thank you" for that great progress we achieved with
hppa. Thanks!
