No problem. I have also been in contact with the bemac shop to get hand
on a oldworld pmac myself, if the occasion presents itself.

We can do the polishing later, no problem with that, polishing is best
done once the package is in use, and receive testing anyway. For the
legal stuff, definitely a reminder is ok, and please CC me about it, or
one of the lists. Who is the upstream anyway ?

Yeah, but it depends on the rsrce package, which is nowhere available.

Oh, ok, understood then.

Yes, altough as said, we can upload rsrce right now, and maybe work
together on polishing or whatever is needed. This is a dependency for
d-i on oldworld, so it is rather urgent. rsrce is legaly ok, and
depended upon by miboot, so nothing is stopping us from uploading it.

Needs investigation, maybe someone else will comment.
Anyway, thanks again for your work on this.
