Re: Bug#564150: Is Debian on PowerPC dead? [Re: Bug still present [Re: Bug#562575: installation-reports: Buisnesscard PowerPC installer loops with Segmentation faults]]

one rick is reporting or trying to solve. Also one needs to be of some
calibre to work in team like
debian to start from an newbie question to actually contributing.
