A machine (Balloon3: 500Mhz pxa270, 512MB RAM, 250GB HD), has been installed and is currently awaiting an external IP address (The current router allocation is all used). Expected to be accessible in very early November. Contact Wookey@wookware.org for access until it is integrated with Debian LDAP.
Thanx to Cambridge University Engineering Dept for the machine, Balloonz Ltd for the 250GB HD and Toby Churchill Ltd for hosting in their server room at the end of a leased line.

Purpose

The purpose of this page is to demonstrate that armel meets the [http://release.debian.org/lenny_arch_policy.html architecture recertification criteria for lenny].

If some of these requirements are irrelevant or implausible for the port, please add a waiver request indicating why and how this isn't a problem for the arch in bold.
