Re: gcc-4.4 & gcj-4.4/java-common uploads to unstable

Marc, Luk, what's the status of the mipsen experimental autobuilders?
How could we get gcc-4.4 to be tried on them before it gets uploaded to

It'd be very inconvenient to have gcc-4.4 unable to migrate quickly to
testing due to an hypothetical nasty FTBFS on mipsen, because of the
shlib bumps (and package takeover) Matthias comments.

- Are you sure we're good?
- Always.
