I would like to ask what are the requirements to add new architectures
to TeX Live's SVN repository.

I was asked to add support for mips64-linux (the resulting name in TL
build scripts is mips64el-unknown-linux-gnu) to the ConTeXt
distribution, but we depend on binaries from TeX Live.

Of course I can store TeX Live binaries locally, but I would like to
know if it makes sense to include those binaries in SVN TL repository
as well.

I'm aware that this architecture might not be the first choice of tex
users (but then ... I'm not sure how many people use mips-irix

(I'm not asking about inclusion on DVD, but about inclusion into SVN

I built the binaries on Debian Squeeze (on someone else's machine).
