Bug#603781: unblock: superiotool
I discovered that the version of superiotool in unstable was blocked from
entering testing due to not being built on ia64 (according to
grep-excuses). But looking at
lists it as being uploaded (although the "Last State Change" date is
weird). However the ia64 version of r5050 isn't in the pool either. I think
wanna-build is confused and this prevented the ia64 buildd from building it
and thus it was blocked for a long time from entering testing.
The package currently has no bugs. It's a utility for determining what
super i/o chipset your system has, mostly useful for coreboot development.
The newer version is able to recognize more chipsets, the version currently
in squeeze (0.0+r3844-1) was uploaded in Dec 2008 and is not so useful.
Assuming it builds on ia64, this version should have been in testing
anyway, and allowing it in now represents very little risk.
Could someone kick w-b and if it builds please consider unblocking?
