Re: Updating w.d.o/{intro/organization#distribution,ports/}

Hi David,

the debian-interix port is currently dead, see also here for details on the fate of the Interix kernel:

The development has been stalled because so many annoying bugs exist in the Interix closed-source kernel DLLs, and MS doesn't care.
Also, there is still no gcc/binutils 64-bit for Windows available.
The binutils part should really be done by MS, as they know the PE-COFF binary format best, but they don't care, either.

So David, if you want to, and only if you want to, you may include the debian-interix port in the ports page (it currently isn't listed at all) as currently dead project, just for completeness of the page. It might be re-animated, when a real development of the Interix kernel should occur at some time.

Hi ports and ports-like team,

The ports and ports-like part of our organization page [1] might be
pretty outdated on the members side. Could you please confirm that the
members list of your team is still accurate, or provide an updated list.
Without any answer within a week, I'll drop the members name from this
page, but will keep the name of the port and a link to the mailing list
as main contact point. If you answer after a week, I'll also be happy to
update the page afterwards.

It's been a long week? Thanks to Bill (Alpha), Dann (IA-64), Thorsten
(m68k), Carlos and John (PA-RISC), Samuel and Svante (GNU/Hurd), and
Christoph and Arno (GNU/kFreeBSD), the organization page [1] has just
been updated.


If you have a second thought, please don't hesitate to reply so we can
update the page [1].

	1: http://www.debian.org/intro/organization#distribution

If you have any update to propose about your port page [2], I'd also be
happy to update the respective page on your behalf, and would be even
happier if you do it yourself (please, ask for write access [3] if
you're not already a member of webwml).

	2: http://www.debian.org/ports/
	3: http://www.debian.org/devel/website/using_cvs#write-access

The offer still stands ;-)

We also have one open bug report [4] about the www.d.o/ports/ part,
specific to amd64, any help to solve it would be welcome (closing it in
case it doesn't make sense could also be appropriate).

This one too?
