Then: a) help fixing RC bugs in Debian, so the release can happen earlier b) push the patches for Hurd (build) issues *upstream* You seem to assume everything must happen "in Debian", forgetting the upstream side and that having a patch accepted in Debian does not mean the job with it is done. > > Having new libraries in debian-ports won't change a bit the > > percentage of packages built in the main archive. > > Of course not.
