AW: debian-ports source packages

Hello pabs,

thanks for the quick reply! Our hardware does not support 64bit, so yes, 
building the packages would be an option. I'll have to check with my
coworkers though. 
Just out of curiosity: If we were to build the packages, what could we 
do to help debian-ports? I mean, we can't just share our deb packages,
or could we?

Kind regards,
Von: Paul Wise <pabs@debian.org>

The unofficial architectures (including powerpc) do not have stable
releases (they only have the unstable/experimental/unreleased suites),
so they do not have any security support. If your hardware supports
ppc64el it would be a good idea to switch to that if you need a stable
release with security support. If your hardware doesn't support
ppc64el I suggest you either upgrade to the unstable suite or rebuild
all Debian security updates for yourself. You might also want to join
the #debian-ports and #debianppc IRC channels and the debian-powerpc
mailing list. Helping out with the unofficial ports is always a good
idea since they usually always need more helpers.
