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 #790327 [2] for package openturns version 1.5-7: I Still got l no
   answers yet. The patch is finished, but the maintainers don't answer me. I
   will Anibal about this. I don't know what to do in this situation.

   - Bug #789619 [3] for package plplot version 5.10.0+dfsg-1: The building
   was failing because of some problem on the cmake script. I fixed that, but
   now it is failing during the octave lib build. For some reason, it is not
   finding an include file even it exists. In the upstream sources, the octave
   is disabled. I'm still working on the fix, basing on upstream sources and I
   will proposed for the maintainers to disable the octave lib by default like
   in the upstream.

   - Bug #793833 [4] for package yade version 1.14.0-5 : The build is
   failing complaining about "no space left on device". While trying to
   rebuild, the dependencies is not installing. Aparentily vtk6 source is with
   wrong dependencies. I'm checking on that, and open a bug as soon as I be
   sure of this.

   - Opened bug #793834 [5] for package polymake version 2.14-2: The build
   is failing due to gcc internal error. Still checking on the package.

   - Opened bug #795146 [6] for package llvm-toolchain-3.4
   version 1:3.4.2-15. The build is failing with message "E: Caught signal
   ‘Terminated’: terminating immediately". I worked harder on bug #789619
   (plplot) and did not check to much on this one.

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 Anibal again about bug #790327.
   - Work on bug #789619, #793833, #793834 and 795146.
   - Open new bugs for still broken packages.
