It would be nice if we could collaboratively maintain installation
tutorials for the various flavours of powerpc so that we can integrate
them into the user manual.

Well, I have one powerpc that has only 64MB and it is fixed (no more, no
less RAM). Compiling things on it is a bit hard, but it does its job

I can guarantee you that working with non-x86 is a lot of fun, really.

Why are you packaging rtorrent?

Isn't the version in sid enough? I am the maintainer of both libtorrent
and rtorrent. If anything of it doesn't work, it would be best to have
Debian's (and upstream's) versions corrected.

Please, do consider the fact that we have an active maintainer of these
packages (actually, a team of 3 people maintaining it).
