llvmpipe has been known to be broken for months, and nobody on the

This doesn't make it seem like the ARM port currently has sufficient
developer expertise involved, and I'd really like to hear what the plans
are for (a) fixing the existing problems, and (b) ensuring that we don't
end up in a situation where other architectures are held up because
there's nobody who can fix ARM-specific bugs.
I'm also concerned that stack protector does not workyet at all. Even if
the desktop was useable, how would we tell people that it's okay to
run e.g. firefox with a straight face? It's not as bad as if, say,
selinux didn't work, but it's a significant concern.
