 It seems I could sync with Ubuntu a bit, but you need to get libs3 and
sync that with me if appreciated.

 Yes, the leveldb maintainer tries to port it to all architectures. It
would be better to join efforts on this topic.
Especially that Ceph is unbuildable on mips, powerpc, s390, s390x and
sparc architectures (where previously it was built) due to leveldb is
unbuildable on them. This means Ceph looses a lot of and big users. :(

 Well, mostly. My step that Ceph and later leveldb should be limited to
the archs where it's buildable is not accepted. Porting is going on for
leveldb, but I still don't see that it will support all archs for
Wheezy. Sorry for the extra work it caused.

 To ones whom it may concerns, Ceph 0.47.2 is passed the new queue and
accepted for Wheezy. This means that adding it to OpenStack can start.

 Will do. Now I've to run.
