Yes, I will not upload mupen64plus-core to architectures which are known to be
completely unsupported by mupen64plus and not working (like powerpc). So
the mupen64plus-qt package has to be fixed to not build on architectures
with missing runtime dependencies.

But my offer to add Mathieu Malaterre and/or Sérgio Benjamim when they want to
maintain the "not officially supported" armhf architecture in Debian is still
open. I've just uploaded the mupen64plus* packages to the pkg-games
(Debian Games Team) git repositories to have everything under the same team

Just tell me and I merge the branch armhf_test in all repositories and add the
voluntaril(y|ies) to the uploaders.


Kind regards,
