Bug#382129: Beta3 won't boot on OldWorld PowerPC Mac

Hi Aurélien,

please don't cc: me - I'm subscribed to both lists, it's against the mailing 
lists code of conduct (something you agree on when joining debian..) and it's 
annoying. Thanks.

That's right. But also machines, for which miboot is useful, are also at least 
10 years old and get less useful each day^wmonth.

I don't see, what this has to do with it. 

But anyway, you're only waiting for an advocate for five weeks and the number 
of AMs is lower than the number of people in NM - so this is quite natural. 

That said, I dont understand the comment on your application ("on hold until 
2006-11 waiting for visible activity") either, if you maintain 11 packages in 
debian :-) Did you ask Myon why he made that comment?

Pity. But sometimes wonders happen :)

You don't need an account to do the work. The svn allows anonymous checkouts, 
so you can work on it and provide patches, which other people will hapily 
commit (with crediting you) if they work. I very certainly would/will.

Frans is a nice guy. Just don't constantly throw dipshit like Sven did and 
neither Frans nor anybody else will treat you badly.

(Sven is a nice guy, too. But... ...I'm tired of this discussion so I wont go 
into more detail here. I feel I've said too much already.)

to you too!
