You might think so, but no - the builds all worked for mipsel.

Right. That means that we'll end up with no bootable options on mips
images. CCing debian-mips for guidance there.

Yeah, looks like. Not clear if/what we should be doing on mips now.

No problem - we've all been busy and it's easy to overlook things like
this if you're not a porter/expert.

I'll wait and see if we can get an answer from -mips about what to

otherwise we'll have to try again next week I guess.
