# GSoC 2015 week 4 report: Improve the Debian port mipsel
This week I've been working in these packages:
* libuv 
* libspiro 
* node-raptor 
* parafly 
* moarvm 
* ncl 
Bug #788795  was closed by the maintainer, and the issue seems now
OK on mipsel .
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  tagged patch.
I've contacted both node-raptor  and node-gyp  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.
There seem to be a bug already opened . I've succefully reproduced
the issue locally
and I am working towards a patch.
It seems there is no easy solution for this package right now.
I opened Debian bug #789187 . Maintainer suggests to exlude moarvm
In talks with upstream developers to address the issue.
## elinux.org ci20 debian jessie
There is the pending task of updating elinux.org  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.
