Maybe I did not not correctly explain myself, but I meant a list corresponding
to the debian releases (potato, woody, future releases) in the first place,
sitting on the debian ports page, although
it would also be nice to have a complete overview over models an supported
distros (with which I do not only mean debian), which of course should be
hosted by penguinppc as a distro independent area.
But maintaining a distro overview list may be a bigger work, because there
have to come together a lot of people who have testet this and this and this
distro on this and this and this ppc hardware.
