Thanks very much for stepping up as porter, you have my vote !

However I need to mention that the specific ppc/mono issue is in fact
pretty interesting. The long thread is on debian-powerpc@l.d.o but the
short version is that this issue only happen because we build the
ppc32 mono version on a ppc64 kernel, I know that since I did debug
this issue.

I have not heard from the ppc64el porters, but I suspect ppc64 will
not be a release arch. So you need to take into consideration that for
powerpc to remain a release arch, one need minimal working ppc64 port.
Could we solve the situation of ppc64 for Stretch, could it be moved
to official release arch ?
