s390, hppa, and alpha have 2.6.10 kernels waiting for NEW processing.  That
leaves powerpc and sparc unaccounted for in the list of "must-have" 2.6
archs.  Part of my goals for the meeting are to figure out what a realistic
timeline would be for getting these two archs synced up on 2.6.10.

Knowing that the sparc kernels are somewhat time-starved, I'm not surprised
that there are no 2.6.10 images in the archive for this arch.  If 2.6.10 is
something we should be shooting for, then having this meeting may be what's
needed to help the sparc porters focus their efforts most effectively.  The
same may be true for powerpc?
