	Subject: MIPS support?
	Status: R

	I found a mention of the R2000/R3000 in hosts.self.  Is there going to
	soon be support for the MIPS chip?  Will it work on my DECStation?

	(This is of great interest to me, as all I can use at the moment is a
	Sun 3 in an office far, far away -- the main reason I haven't been
	using self much)

We have no plans to launch a MIPS port, but it would be a nice experiment
to evaluate certain architectural features of SPARC vs MIPS



PS: maybe you can find one of the cheap SPARC machines around?
