Any work on what? I doubt that you can seriously mean m68k with that. 

Citing Camm Maguire on debian-68k list (20 Feb 2004 23:12:45 -0500)

"Greetings!  Just wanted to say a quick word of thanks and
encouragement to the m68k crowd -- I routinely get faster and more
helpful replies on these lists than I do from many lists pertaining to
much faster hardware."

Maybe you ask on some other lists than the m68k lists, like someone else did
when complaining about m68k, but forgot to CC the 68k people before...

Well, "dropping" a previously unreleased arch is something different than
really dropping a multiple released arch. I think "not releasing yet" would
be the appropriate term for s390 at least.

When you only refer to d-i as being release relevant, then I don't know why
all those people complain about packages not entering testing?
