Maybe; I was referring to sun4u vs. other, older sparc32 architectures. I had SparcStation at one point, and those were certainly not sparc64. These are (obviously) not supported by debian-sparc64. >> Ok. I'll contact them and ask if this is a good way to move forward. Why >> is it in unreleased?

I'll have a look. It doesn't look like this package would only build/work on sparc. Usefulness is a different matter - but that's probably outside the scope of acceptance criteria?
