Re: [Stretch] Status for architecture qualification

In addition to the debian powerpc mailing list, powerpc users are active on the Ubuntu forums.  I'm running Debian Sid on a Powerbook and everything works except 3D acceleration.  I don't see a need to drop it.

 The debian-powerpc@l.d.o
 mailing list is active so I would say it
 still has some users. I have been using
 partch.d.o for doing some work
 on PowerPC. I
 posted a summary of work people have been doing on this
 port lately:
 However I do agree that true
 PowerPC hardware is actually
 and it is alive mostly thanks to being an ABI using
 32bits integer for PPC64 CPU(s).
