Thanks for your attention and work for porting mips to Ubuntu. I am lIU

No problem. We will do everything we can to help this out. First I will
set up a compile farm which contains about 15 Loongson-2f machines.

I have request to join these two teams. I think we should discuss more
details to what should we do next.
