 Most of all packages in binary-sh ware built by me. And these packages
are already removed from official tree, I know.

 Dpkg was already changed to handle binary-sh3/-sh4/-sh3eb/-sh4eb
(after dpkg 1.10) and dropped handling binary-sh.

 So, binary-sh tree is unnecessary.

 Binary incompatibility between SH3 and SH4 was disccused on debian-sh
list, we need both binary-sh3 and binary-sh4, I understand.

On this thread:


 I wish to merge binary-sh3 and binary-sh4 support to next Debian
official release.

 Of cause, I'll do this ;-)
 And I'm restarting binary-sh3/-sh4 build on my own machine.
