Re: PPC blackdown JDK... any news?

   I was just wondering if anybody on this list has their ears near the 
   blackdown JDK porters for PPC.  PPC never had a 1.3.1 release, and 
   searching on debian-java and linuxppc-user & dev doesn't seem to 
   reveal any JDK related traffic in many moons.  Anybody here happen to 
   know if the porting effort is still alive? Heads down and working on 
   1.4, or what?

Yeah, their latest release appears to be 1.3.0 [FCS & b2], and 1.3.1 seems 
to be only for 'i386' and 'arm':

PowerPC is in their latest JDK1.2, e.g. 1.2.2 [FCS & rc4]:


Is someone at least going to debianize JDK1.3.0 or JDK1.2.2 for PowerPC
(perhaps putting the result on 'blackdown.org' and its mirrors if it's not
suitable for 'debian.org')? 


I'm really hoping to retire my Intel box from active duty, and one obstacle
is lack of cleanliness here.
