138 packages built successfully. 19 packages failed to cross build. 2 packages are tagged for a manual upload. (Dependency issues - rather than break the archive, these packages will not be uploaded until relevant dependencies have been fixed and uploaded.)
87% built OK
Of the problems above, only problems 2, 3 and 4 (gtk, pango and xfonts-base) are "critical" as these are the only ones where the current packages are sufficiently broken that the new version is essential before Emdebian can make a "release" of a series of three root filesystems for ARM. Sizes are still larger than desired - a fix for that requires changes in glibc which I hope to investigate during DebConf.
Any help on the above issues is appreciated.

If you have SVN access, use 'emdebuild --svn-only' to commit your changes (even if your changes don't solve all the problems).
Without SVN access, post the result of 'svn diff ../emdebian*' to this list (or 'svn diff ../debian*' if you have added a patch for the upstream code to debian/patches/).
All the above is based solely on Emdebian ARM for balloon3:
Linux balloon 22.214.171.124-pxa270 #1 Sun May 18 22:38:11 BST 2008 armv5tel unknown
balloon3 in CUED case
AFAICT no other ARM platforms have been tested.
I have a few fixes for the balloon3-config package that also needs an update in Emdebian - I've had some feedback from the touchscreen driver
upstream that we might be trying to use the wrong device (/dev/input/mice is the wrong target for the symlink, we can set whatever device we want in /etc/X11/xorg.conf and the driver will use that in preference to /dev/event0). As this is device-specific, /etc/X11/xorg.conf will be put into balloon3-config which is available via Emdebian SVN.
