Here is a small update about mips64el (and mips).

The machines at SIL have been racked and installed:
- mips-sil-01.debian.org building mips (it has an FPU)
- mipsel-sil-01.debian.org building mips64el and then mipsel
Also we have changed mipsel-manda-02 so that it builds first mips64el
and then mipsel.
This means we should have enough DSAed buildds for mips64el. When
MAN-DA machines are installed we'll get more redundancy.

There has been some progress there too, a patch has been sent upstream:
