Bug#134565: CLISP is a very old version
FL> clisp | 1:2.27-0.5 | unstable | source, alpha, i386, powerpc, s390
FL> That program has MANY portability problems which prevent it to enter
FL> testing. It fails building on sparc,arm,m68k,hppa,ia64.
I see. I didn't realise that.
FL> My current proposal is reducing the number of supported archs for clisp
FL> and so downgrade all serious bugs.
It's up to you, of course, but I'm not quite sure that's a good idea.
I'd much rather have an older version that is available everywhere.
FL> Sad to say, we cannot work instead of the upstream in solving all
FL> those issues, sorry.
Well, portability problems are difficult to take care of, and you, as
a Debian developer, may very well be in a better situation than Bruno
Haible to get in touch with vict^H^H^H^Hbeta testers.
Bruno, do you have any comments?
Thanks to both of you,
