Well, the stats have continued dropping since then, now down by about 1.5%
in less than a week. The last such dip on the graph seems to have taken
about a month to recover from, so I'm not sure it's accurate to say m68k is
currently keeping up with the load? Then again, the last such period shows
similar dips for most other archs, so perhaps this wouldn't be an issue at
all if m68k weren't so close to the redline in the first place.
So I guess if the current dip doesn't look out of the ordinary to any of the
porters, we can wait and see.
Steve Langasek Give me a lever long enough and a Free OS
