When there is something to test, please let me know, or let the
debian-sparc list know.  I've got an Ultra 30 and an Ultra 2 dedicated
to testing d-i.  (As well as a sparcstation LX and a sparcstation 20.)

At one point, I was activly trying to get d-i working on sparc.  Three
reorginizations in code I was trying to work on in two weeks showed me
that it would take someone with a lot more time available just to stay
current without actually fixing any bugs.

With Microsoft, failure is not an option.  It is a standard feature.
