Re: armel/armhf arch qualification for buster: call for DSA, Security, toolchain concernsj

Dear armel/armhf shakeholders,

I talked to a few people about keeping armel in buster, during 1st and
2nd day in debcamp.
Seems the blocker is just the buildd server hardware, and memory size it has.

I think DSA team prefers armel or armhf real hardware (not just
developing boards).
So it'll be super great if you (or your boss) can kindly sponsor some
armel/armhf hardwares that support to install 4GB memory.
