You're actually porting Ubuntu to MIPS?  I assume you're aware that porting a
huge codebase to an architecture it didn't support before requires a
significant amount of QA.

It's fine if you want to work on that, but I doubt any of us has the resources
to even find all those new MIPS-related runtime issues, let alone fix them.

Oh well, since nobody had a take on it, I think I'll start hacking on D-I.  I
expect I can have usable installer in a few days.
