Bug#154179: Please create binary-sh[34] and remove binary-sh

Package: ftp.debian.org
Severity: wishlist


Please consider creating deb repository in ftp.debian.org for some of
SuperH architectures: sh3, sh4, sh3eb, sh4eb.  And please remove
binary-sh which had been obsolete long before.

dpkg has already had supports for all these variants since 1.10, but I
don't think all of them need to be distributed by the Debian project.

Platforms with sh3eb or sh4eb are not so popular as ones with sh3 or
sh4.  The binary distribution for the latter both are heavily in demand,
especially in the embedded scene.  So I suggest creating binary-sh3 and
binary-sh4 for now.

I'm not yet an official Debian developer (NM process in progress), but
my buildd processes for sh3 and sh4 have successfully built 837 and 3365
debs respectively so far.  Please visit http://debian.dodes.org/.

Most of them are ready to be uploaded to ftp.debian.org and become
official Debian packages.  Is it possbile to ask someone to sponsor the

And, I can provide for maintainers with the network access to my sh3 or
sh4 machines.  If you want it, feel free to contact me with your ssh
public key ready.
