There are only very few people still interested in sparc32 and all
that is needed is kernel support (and glibc support later).  This list
(debian-sparc) is not too much crowded to drag the sparc32 part out of

It's sad to see this sub-architecture go, but without no kernel
developers still interested in it and nobody willing to become a
kernel hacker for this architecture, there's no chance.
