# GSoC 2015 week 4 report: Improve the Debian port mipsel

This week I've been working in these packages:

 * libuv [1]
 * libspiro [2]
 * node-raptor [3]
 * parafly [4]
 * moarvm [5]
 * ncl [6]

## libuv

Bug #788795 [7] was closed by the maintainer, and the issue seems now
OK on mipsel [8].

## libspiro

This week I've been working with upstream to address the issue, which
seems solved in their latest HEAD.
I opened a Debian bug #789012 [9] tagged patch.

## node-raptor

I've contacted both node-raptor [10] and node-gyp [11] upstream
developers asking for help.
I fear that node-raptor is dead upstream: no activity in more than a year.

The fact is that I have a temptative patch, it seems to solve the
original issue but leads
to another one.

## parafly

There seem to be a bug already opened [12]. I've succefully reproduced
the issue locally
and I am working towards a patch.

## moarvm

It seems there is no easy solution for this package right now.
I opened Debian bug #789187 [13]. Maintainer suggests to exlude moarvm
from mispel.

## nlc

In talks with upstream developers to address the issue.

## elinux.org ci20 debian jessie

There is the pending task of updating elinux.org [14] regarding the problems
found in the ci20 when upgrading debian 7 wheezy to debian 8 jessie.

Doing upgrade tests clashes with my work on packages, so I proposed to my mentor
(Anibal) the idea of wait a bit more before doing this task.
