Well, who is working on the powerpc d-i port ? Only Colin Watson, but his
duties in ubuntu don't leave him enough time to do the work properly, and it
was always me in the past who ended up doing the work nobody else cared about.
Since they remove me, and given the difficulties the d-i project has to find
porters, i don't think they will be able to solve this issue in a timely
fashion for the etch release.
Actually, you can consider the fact of the rather abandonement of the d-i
project, and of joeyh regularly blaming the lazyness of the porters, as a sign
that something is really roten in d-i even without the issues about me.
Appart from the translators, naturally, but who is there really left doing
real d-i job in the last year, hardly a handful of persons or so.
