I'm working on the project "Improve one of the Debian MIPS ports" [0]. In
few words, the objective of this project is to fix broken packages of
Debian port on mipsel, so that the quality of debian in these architectures
can be improved.

An online repository with all the relevant files of the project can be
found here [1].

Below is a summary of the current status of each bug:

   - Bug #788680 [2] for package openni version The bug was
   closed on message [3].

   - Bug #790327 [4] for package openturns version 1.5-7: I sent another
   message on the bug thread asking the maintainers to review my patch. Still
   no answers yet.

   - Bug #788801 [5] for package dolfin version 1.5.0-4: I closed the bug

   - Bug #789619 [7] for package plplot version 5.10.0+dfsg-1: The building
   is failing because of some problem on the cmake script. I'm still working
   on the fix, basing on upstream sources.

   - Opened bug #793833 [8] for package yade version 1.14.0-5 : The build
   is failingcomplaining about "no space left on device". While trying to
   rebuild, the dependencies is not installing. After an analyze I found out
   the following build-dependency:
   but libicu52 is unavailable. I will try an update latter on this week to
   check if it is already available.

   - Opened bug #793834 [9] for package polymake version 2.14-2: The build
   is failing due to gcc internal error. Still checking on the package.

   - Opened bug #793835 [10] for package kmc version 2.0+dfsg-1: The build
   was failing due to wrong parameter passed to g++. Maintainer fixed the bug
   before me. Bug was closed on message [11]

According to the original schedule [0] this week was to focus on fixing
bugs. So, we are up-to-date with the schedule.

Next week:
   - Ask maintainers again about bugs #790327.
   - Work on bug #789619, #793833 and #793834.
   - Open new bugs for still broken packages.
