Debian Nanonote port

Hello, I'm just wondering how the Debian port to the Nano is coming 
along - it's much nicer than OpenWRT (to me, at least), and I've tried 
it out, but with the keymappings and passwd being broken, I obviously 
can't really use it at the moment. Is that a problem with my setup, or 
is it something that's been recognized, and is being worked on?

Also, are there any plans to include the entire GNU toolset (as opposed 
to just cc) into the image, and to enable changes to the display font 
without patching the kernel (maybe by including the patch with the 
kernel as an alternate version)? Because when it's working properly with 
Debian, I'll just be using it as a little computer, not using it as an 
embedded platform for a specific job. That means I'll be using it to 
write and compile code (should make learning C easier, I'll just be able 
to take my box with me) and screen-space will be precious.

Thank you very much; I look forward to your reply. Mark.
