The purpose of this page is to demonstrate that m68k meets the [http://release.debian.org/etch_arch_criteria.html 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.
The architecture is publicly available without NDAs via:
The following machines are available to developers:
crest.debian.org - maintained by DSA, connectivity via 10Mbit Ethernet.
kullervo.debian.org - maintained by DSA, connectivity via 10Mbit Ethernet
The Debian port is maintained by the following developers, who are familiar with arch-specific issues for this port
Wouter Verhelst <email@example.com>
Stephen R. Marenka <firstname.lastname@example.org>
The port is being actively used at the following sites:
Please see http://www.buildd.net/cgi/archvote.phtml -- voluntary registration of some users since the requirement was made public. Also, http://www.linux-m68k.org/Registry/Registration.html -- voluntary registration of many Linux/m68k users since the m68k Linux port was started (some of those may not be active anymore).
Popcon indicates zz users of the architecture as at 2005/xx/yy.
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).
