For the powerpc port we currently build the gtk-miniiso as part of the daily builds. I have discussed this with Colin and because of the issues with g-i on powerpc we have decided not to add g-i support on other CD images: - powerpc CD images are already very full because of the number of subarches (and thus initrd and kernel images) - it is still unclear which systems and fb devices are really supported and which are not; g-i does not yet deal with that very cleanly - reports about g-i crashes on powerpc (mainly from yourself) So, consider g-i for powerpc experimental and for those who want to play with it or contribute we have the gtk-miniiso. > And another question, is there _really_ a D-I powerpc porter present? > AFAIK Colin has retreated prom this position and Geert is still trying > to accomodate with D-I workflow.

No, Colin has not retreated from this position. We also have Daniel Dickinson helping out for oldworld. I agree that we still need extra help for powerpc (and I've never said differently). However, I am very happy that Holger and Wouter have offered their help.
