Indeed, I have been planning to do that for a very long time, but
interrupting any Debian activity did not help in the matter.
Hopefully, now I can manage some Debian time,
so I will update,
say this week, the package and any bits of d-i necessary for it
Very nice. Do you need help on that ?
I'm willing to help in any way I can. In particular, testing.
Here, I am mainly thinking about RAID, LVM, and crypto
installations in yaboot-installer, as upstream did some changes in
yaboot about them.
Doesn't it seem a bit too much to do for now ? I think that what
everybody wants for now is /just/ a working yaboot.
RAID, LVM and crypto support are important. I think we all agree.
But for the short-term, we need to get Joseph's ofpath rewrite and my
ybin patches into a bootable installer "iso" so that they can be
tested by a wider community. I say this because they will be
critical to having a working Debian Squeeze installer for PowerPC.
