Waivers

amd64

Porters

Our toolchain maintainers are happy to support amd64 as-is.

armel / armhf

Buildds (armel)

All buildds except one (ancina) are at the same location. Machine redundancy is sufficient.

RM Concerns

Need to re-evaluate the situation with armel and armhf in two months. Armel is just keeping up with unstable and experimental on most days. Armhf has currently an backlog with experimental and just about keeps up with unstable.

i386

Porters

Our toolchain maintainers are happy to support i386 as-is.

kfreebsd

Upstream Support

Kernel has obviously a large community which supports it. gcc has upstream support, the kfreebsd-specific part is only a few hundred lines long. glibc is done by us (mostly Petr Salinger).

mips/mipsel

RM Concerns

Need to re-evaluate the situation with mips and mipsel in two months. There is a hardware offer currently being discussed with DSA (and would also resolve the concerns from DSA), looks like heading in the right direction. Up to that implemented, mips and mipsel is just keeping up with unstable and experimental on most days.

sparc

Upstream Support

According to the gcc maintainer 32bit code generation as we use it is no longer supported upstream and we should aim for a switch to 64bit userland anytime soon.
