I dunno,

Stats are bad.  Debian should be maintained for m68k if for no other
reason than there is no other distro for m68k that I know of.  I doubt
however that m68k beats arm since there's probably more than a couple
debian using ipaq and zaurus users.  Chances are they don't use apt or
popcon much ;)  Anyway, there's probably a lot of m68k people which
while they may not actively use m68klinux, they absolutely positively
want to do anything necessary to ensure the continuance of the port.  I
fall into that category.  I'm going to start working on parted any day
