Then, updating yaboot to the latest known active development branch
(http://yaboot.ozlabs.org/ ) would help a lot our port to stay alive, as
many have noted that Debian on PPC looks a bit dead from "outside".

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
to work.

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.
