Good - thanks for your help!

Will see what I can do. Will be on VAC for the next 2 weeks. Will
probably continue Debian duties, but won't have access to a powerpcspe
during this time.

Will get back when I have packages ready.

Can you please try to not further automatically decrease the number of
available powerpcspe packages during this time? :-)

Thanks in advance,
