i volunteered to do this on penguinppc a few days ago[1] and got no reply on
it... nor did anyone ask me about the debian pages themselves... but either
way i am opening my mouth again, and this time also extending the offer to
and/or do the debian gnu/linux ppc port pages, if it is not objectionable to


p.s. what i am refering to below as doing it for mac model is i am writing a
     macos app for a user to d/l and run and it will tell them if linux has
     been tested on their machine (on older models it will just give the
     minimum kernel version for suggested use..) and which boot loader to
     use (xboot/yaboot) i am doing this more as an 'excercise left to the
     reader' that i am gonna to GPL and set it free...
p.p.s. and as soon as i send this i will sub to the debian-www list...

i can volunteer for this... i am going to be compiling something similar for
mac models so adding the other ppc ports wouldnt be much trouble...
