We wouldn't consider this as a distinct port, as the PS3 will run the
same powerpc binaries as we already provide.  But I assume there is some
specific hardware support (particularly for the SPEs) that is currently
lacking from our powerpc port, and help on that would surely be welcome.

These instructions seem to imply that the Debian installer does not work
properly on PS3 at the moment.  If you want to work on improving the
installer, the proper list is debian-boot@lists.debian.org.
