Package: ftp.debian.org
Severity: normal

We have discovered that the oggvideotools binaries on some architectures
do not work, and added a build time check to block such binaries from
entering the archive.  But the old and obsolete binary packages for the
broken architectures should be removed.

The problem is most likely related to big endian machines, and we will
try to fix it, but it will need some time and coordination with
upstream.  In the mean time, we would like the new version to make it to
its users - which obviously are not on big endian machines.

show the builds failing on the new test code.

Happy hacking
