Dear release team.
We(sh4 porting team) are now trying to run Debian on Renesas SH(sh4) CPU.
We want to support sh4 by the next release (Wheezy).
- Buildd status
Currentry, we are finished with build with packages of about 90%.
- ArchiveQualification of sh4
How do you think about including sh4 in the next release?
If I have say "go ahead!", we will start work with DSA, buildd
team, security team and ftp-master team.
A few questions:
You say "there is many user waiting for port to Debian" in the wiki
page listed. How many is "many"?
What are the future prospects for sh4? It seems that STM are
concentrating on ARM-based cores for future products...
Not sure why STMs activities are relevant? Renesas owns the IP and is
moving forward with SH4-based cores.
