I've uploaded a binary-only PPC build from voltaire .... it's now in
incoming. If you want to do a binary-only upload in the future, here's
how to do it (as I understand it from the Developer's Reference ...)

build with 'dpkg-buildpackage -B -m"your name <email>"'
(the -B specifies arch-dependent pkgs only - in parted's case, parted-doc
 wouldn't be built, since it is Arch: all)
You'll have to sign it as normal ....
upload as normal ...

Just make sure it's built from the proper .orig.tar.gz/.diff.gz and .dsc

So there should be parted/PPC in unstable sometime within the next
24 hours ... - now if someone can pls just change the install status
for the buildd .....
