Could it have been Zach Lowry?
I was briefly in contact with him, before he decided to move onto some
spin-off distro (cant remember the name) that eventually died off.
I started my gentoo-m68k with the old redhat-5.2 from Jes, starting with
manually upgrading python and getting portage working, and slowly building
my way out. It took almost a year before all the rpms were replaced with
portage packages on my old slow 50MHz 030 32MB RAM :)
Today I also have help from a second A1200 with Blizz1260 and 192MB RAM,
as well as aranym, I mostly use aranym for building and then install
binary packages on my amigas and a mac (Q610).

Ah..... ok, #debian-68k added to my OFTC profile :)
