One last mail to this.

The solution, well, its a powerpc specific fork of debian and/or ubuntu. It
can be done if enough people help out. And it may help in re-integration in
the future. The debian case is easier than the ubuntu one, since basically
there is good powerpc support, and always will be, it is just a few stubborn
people in key position, who have something against me personally, but they
also were not able to find a replacement for me, despite strong words of
people like Holger.

No more mails now, but i wanted to clarify that me being silent for 2 months
on the lists doesn't necessarily mean i will not continue working on the
powerpc port.
