However, now we reached a point where a few more release teamisch hints don't help anymore: The next large blocker is gcj-4.1 / gccdefaults / ecj. This is now blocked by different bugs on different architecture:
- mips* needs to have xulrunner built first to build gcj-4.1. This is discussed in bug #428582, and the porters are busy working on it.
- hppa fails for unknown reasons - probably it needs some porting. That should be discussed in bug #431865 but until now there was no answer from the hppa porters.
- arm already reached the state of being out-of-date to a degree that it needs bootstraping by hand - see http://lists.debian.org/debian-arm/2007/07/msg00014.html for reference.
Update: Aurelien Jarno informed me that gcj-4.1 had to be bootstrapped on all architectures, but it hasn't happened yet on arm due to bugs in gcj.
