    Interesting, I've never heard of OpenRISC, but it sounds somewhat promising.

    In other Debian news, all votes are in:

    Yeap, this needs a casting vote. Again.
    Also, Jackson wants to change the Debian Constitution (not as controversial as it sounds):

    Yes, because Debian is already so capable of managing the current ports being up-to-date, not!

    Perhaps you would like to join in so that Debian can keep their ports working?

    OpenRISC is a really nice project.
    Now if only it would have a name that would not scare away everyone who is not familiar with the acronym RISC.
    I don't care that it means/stands for Reduced Instruction Set Computing.
    Having the word risc or other similar to risk sounding acronyms in the name of an instruction set is a bad idea!
    The project and instruction set names should be renamed to better names. (OpenStable or something would be much better)
