Purpose

The purpose of this page is to demonstrate that m68k meets the architecture recertification criteria for etch.

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.

Availability

The architecture is publicly available without NDAs via:

  1. http://www.bvm.co.uk/

  2. http://www.czuba-tech.com/CT60/english/welcome.htm

  3. http://www.q40.de/

Developer machines

The following machines are available to developers:

  1. crest.debian.org - maintained by DSA, connectivity via 10Mbit Ethernet.

  2. kullervo.debian.org - maintained by DSA, connectivity via 10Mbit Ethernet -- kullervo was not available for aba on 2005-10-29

Port maintainers

The Debian port is maintained by the following developers, who are familiar with arch-specific issues for this port

  1. Wouter Verhelst <wouter@debian.org>

  2. Stephen R. Marenka <smarenka@debian.org>

  3. Christian T. Steigies <cts@debian.org>

  4. Adam Conrad <adconrad@debian.org>

  5. Michael Schmitz <schmitz@debian.org>

  6. ...

Users

The port is being actively used at the following sites:

Popcon indicates 5 users of the architecture as at 2005/11/18.

Installer

The installer is being maintained by Stephen Marenka and Wouter Verhelst and the Sarge version is currently working effectively (the Etch version needs some more work, see DebianInstaller/M68k).

Upstream support

Upstream support is provided by:

  • glibc: Andreas Schwab <schwab@suse.de>

  • gcc: Andreas Schwab <schwab@suse.de>

  • kernel: linux-m68k@vger.kernel.org -- central mailinglist for m68k kernel development; rather active, with ~5-10 regular posters and (on average) a few posts each day.

  • boot loader: see Bootloaders on DebianInstaller/M68k

    • Emile (Laurent Vivier <lvivier@users.sourceforge.net>) (not yet packaged, but planned by Wouter & Stephen) -- If you're going to list upstream support for the bootloader, it would be good to pick one that's in Debian today, please. ?SteveLangasek

      • EMILE is in Debian since, errm, "today", i.e., 2006-06-03. WouterVerhelst

    • amiboot
  • binutils: Ben Elliston <bje@gnu.org>

  • ...

Archive coverage and Autobuilder support

  • The port is currently at 94.5% (2005/11/20) up to date according to the buildd stats (95% cut off)

  • The port has currently built 96.5% (2005/11/20) of the archive according to the buildd stats (90% cut off)

Archive cleanliness

The port builds from unmodified Debian source.

Autobuilders

For an overview of current autobuilders, please see http://unstable.buildd.net/index-m68k.html. 15 active machines as of this writing. Quickstep might be considered as redundancy. It usually builds experimental, but can do unstable, too.

Also note that the release team has agreed on grandfathering in the m68k port wrt this requirement.

Vetoes

The security team have noted the following problems in supporting the architecture:

  • None

The Debian admin team have noted the following problems in supporting the architecture:

  • None

The release team have noted the following problems in supporting the architecture:

  • Not keeping up ATM.
    • -- backlog cleared since ~2 weeks (as of 2005/11/18) (ij)
