It's a port I have started following a discussion on IRC with the
release team. Given the Sparc32 port is slowly dying due to lack of
upstream support it is necessary to switch sooner or later to a Sparc64
port. DSA was kind enough to give me access to zee.debian.org that is
faster than my UltraSparc machine, and that also runs a build daemon.

The base of the port is there, but there are still a lot of work mainly
to get Qt and OpenJDK working here before the port can progress further.

I have created a quick and dirty Sparc64 page on the wiki [1], please
fill free to improve it.
