One simple way to help a bit which will make it more visible to the
Debian community at large that the s390 port is used, is to install
and activate popularity-contest on these machines and thus make sure
236 machines show up on <URL: http://popcon.debian.org/ > as running
the s390 port. :)

At the moment, only 8 machines are reporting to popularity-contest,
which put s390 in line with hurd-i386, kfreebsd-amd64 and m68k as
ports with very small user groups.  That number made me and probably
others believe that very few are using the s390 port - at least until
your email came along. :)

Happy hacking,
Petter Reinholdtsen
