I am not the only person working on the powerpc d-i ? Nice to know, i know
Colin does some stuff occasionally, but that is about it. I wish those other
people could have a look at :

  #397973: [powerpci/mac] partman-md appears to not write back the raid flag
  to partitions.

Since i am myself fullly clueless about partman, and despite trying to work
with it and investigate, i was not able to ever find some stuff out of it.
That bug is open since 19 days now, without a single comment.

And Holger, about this, i wish to point you to the thread starting at :


And in particular my most helpful reply at :


I am not aware of anyone having worked on any of those issues, apart from
Colin Watson who occasionally handles the kernel .udebs when he has time. And
i fixed the g-i problems with the help of attilio, eddy, and others from this
list, but still graphical d-i will not be officially included in etch d-i for
etch. Maybe you could give a hand with those issues ? Or those others you
mentioned ?
