For those who really, actually care about D-I support for PowerPC...

Please take a look at the history for these two recent bug reports before 
forming your opinion:
- http://bugs.debian.org/405572
- http://bugs.debian.org/405579

Oh, and also, it currently still looks like the issue that started this 
ridiculous thread _is_ actually resolved in the version of the installer 
that will be shipped with Etch...
And so have most of the other PowerPC-specific issues that have been 
identified over the past few months...

Please don't be fooled by the one-sided and biased information that you've 
been getting on this mailing list over the past months. The Debian 
Installer team _does_ care about properly supporting _all_ Debian ports, 
and spends significant amounts of time coordinating and testing the 
installer for _all_ ports. Just as the team cares about supporting as 
many languages as possible.

Cheers, but getting tired of this unfounded bullshit,
