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].

Unfortunately I had a lot of work with my doctorate and could not spent too
much effort this week. I will compensate on the next one.

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 from the maintainers. I asked Anibal about how to proceed on this
   situation. I think I cannot do anything else on this package.

   - Bug #789619 [3] for package plplot version 5.10.0+dfsg-1: I'm still
   working on the octave problem 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-dependencies is conflicting. I working on a solution, probably on
   other packages.

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

   - 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". The maintainers said we should not spend more effort on this
   package because it is almost obsolete.

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:
   - Finish pending bugs.
