    Yeah, that's what I've been saying for ages now. If Karsten still has
    his SWARM, I'd say he should give it a more active developer who's
    interested in working on SWARM support (Aurelien Jarno or Thomas
    Bogendoerfer maybe).

    But I consider SWARM completely broken. I doubt the kernel works and
    debian-installer is probably completely broken too because nobody has
    tested it in years. d-i support for the BigSur never worked, although
    it's still there. I think d-i support for SWARM and BigSur should be
    removed unless something is willing to fix it.

    I am promised to have internet access again at home next weekend,
    working on the SWARM kernels is the highest Debian-related priority
    I have at that point.

    The problem with removing SWARM support is that the autobuilders all
    need those kernels and removing the support would be the death of the
    mips(el) port.

    I still have my SWARM, although it has been running only very
    flaky during the last months. All newer kernels don't boot at all
    as listed in the bugreports, but nowadays even with old kernels
    (which used to work before without problems even under heavy
    load) the box freezes after some time, so I assume the machine
    has hardware problems. Testing on this box therefore does not
    really help atm.

    Thiemo, what's the status of this?
