Announce: Base system for binary-mipsel available

Hi co-porters,

I'm happy to announce the existance a working Debian base system for
little endian MIPS machines.

The base system is not perfect yet and it does not contain the exact
Debian base system (as of base2_1.tgz).  However, it works when
booting from it, contains apt (just run apt-get update), contains a
telnet daemon (non-package yet), empty root password etc.  And, of
course, this is a proper way to continue porting/hacking.

MD5: d821a4fa97f6a7a8a92d66c6153e648b mipsel-base.tar.gz

The base system looks like:
