Imagination maintains momentum for Debian MIPS ports    press@debian.org

In October of 2014, Imagination Technologies donated several MIPS-based
machines for Debian development; these include substantially faster
Loongson 3A (mipsel) and Cavium Octeon II (mips) servers. The brand new
machines include three Loongson LS3A-RS780E development boards, one
Lemote 3A ITX and three EdgeRouter Pro 8 port machines.

"Debian's distributed build cluster requires high performance and high
reliability from the machines used", explains Aurelien Jarno, Debian
MIPS port maintainer. "We are confident that these devices will help us
build and maintain Debian's MIPS ports over the next release cycles".

The Debian MIPS ports are also possible thanks to donations from the AQL
hosting service provider, the Eaton remote controlled ePDU and many
other individual members of the Debian community.
