Re: Xorg 7 on sparc64

I would hesitate to try Xorg 7 from Debian Sparc repositories except when thee
is no alternative, i.e. bare metal.  Working pre-7 versions have disappeared
from Testing so there is no easy way to revert if 7.0 is broken.  A definite
mass breakage is that neither Testing nor Sid contains any of the
xserver-xorg-video-sun* packages that provide drivers for ffb, tgx, leo, etc.

Are those drivers available upstream and are not available as packages purely due to faulty packaging? Has this problem been brought to the attention of XSF in any way?
