Things have become better, I'd like to thank you for that.
There are still more issues with hppa popping up than with other
architectures, but the general direction looks promising. For this
reason, we have decided that we try to avoid the additional burden of
packages getting out of sync, and keep hppa in our list of "normal
supported architectures" at this time. We are only able to keep it
this way if the good work continues, the switch to ntpl happens etc
etc - I definitly hope it will work out well.
