Debian is currently targeting v4t rather than v5. There was a recent
discussion on debian-arm about bumping the compat baseline to v5, and the
consensus seemed to be that there wasn't enough performance improvement to
justify the effort and the loss of compatibility with some widely-deployed
v4t developer kit.
But as long as the goal is to have something that can /run/ on v5 hw (as
opposed to something that runs /optimally/ on v5 hw), Debian fits the bill.
Steve Langasek Give me a lever long enough and a Free OS
Debian Developer to set it on, and I can move the world.
