The facts you removed are just a basis to state the current state of

Among these discussion, it is ok for you to say : i don't care, the
current situation fits me well, but it is clear that this is not the
opinion of other readers.

Are they ? I would really much like them to be, but given that they

What other place is better to discuss the current situation of the
powerpc port, and what could be done to improve it ?
And please, tell me, what positive and constructive contribution you
have made to the topic ?
