Right, powerpc shouldn't go in right now. We have more then 200 packages
uncompiled (many maintainer doesn't response for bug lists!!!).

We need a 2.1.x kernel source package, which isn't available for debian. 

Brian and the other arch maintainer with 2.1 kernels: what about to
have the linux-cvs tree (as a debian package) in experimental?? This
will help. Linux-2.1.125 is very near on linux-2.2 !!

I like also to have the powerpc-debian-cd available before we release.
