It is a good idea to know what system maintainers are working for/on.
It's also good if the maintainer of a package know that Maintainer-X is
recompileing the package for arch-Y so he can give him a notice that the
source has changed. That will only be for a very few packages anyway.
Somethink like the bootdisks for example.

At the moment I'm looking for a maintainer that ports to PPC and with
the list I would only have to grep for PPC.

May the source be with you.

PS: Anybody, reading this, working on a Debian PPC port at the moment?
