ok, that's what I'll be reading before posting further questions!

You mean there is nobody who contributes new/fixed/updated content?

CC'ing -powerpc or post summaries? Well, this thread originated about 2 weeks ago in
debian-powerpc, but I was advised to move over to -www because this would be
the better place to discuss web related topics (well, of course it is).
So, I could inform -powerpc about lacking maintenance and ask if someone would
have the competencies and time to do some updating?

Uhmm, I only have plain html experience..
It seems that it would be best to put together some fixes and contact you
again after having it all completed, and ask you to upload them? Or should
we look out for a new powerpc maintainer with access to the cvs?
