This package tracker is better than the old one on many aspects (easy to
extend, more dynamic, responsive, packed with new features such as
subscription management on the web, team subscriptions, etc.) but should
you find some features that are lacking or some other problems, then
please file bug reports against the tracker.debian.org pseudo-package.
Also don't hesitate to help us by contributing patches for those issues.

Not convinced? Go back to the old package tracking system.

Sorry, I think I phrased that wrong - there may not be a bug in libxml2.
It's been known for some time that the Loongsons have issues with
certain newer MIPS instructions (as used on mips64el). I'm not sure if
this bug has ever been fully investigated, but since it only happened on
Loongson I think it was just written off as a hardware glitch.

Yunqiang, did you ever look into it (only asking because you appear to
be a maintainer of libxml2)?
