Yes, I know that sh port isn't maintained very well. The main reason
for it is exactly this confusion about sh* architectures.
All the binary-sh archives of Debian has been built and uploaded by
ISHIKAWA Mutsumi. But he has stopped it this autumn because the
current architecture scheme turned out problematic.
Once we settle the problem and have migrated to the new scheme, he
would resume the buildd process, and some other poeple (including me)
would join that effort. I'm convinced that we could offer better
maintenance of sh port.

Thanks. I'd like to prepare some documentation for it if possible.
