Before I invest much more time in it, what say you, Julien?

I have no problems mentioning it as a community build, but Julien ıs better placed to check if it would cause problems on our 'Get Lubuntu' page.

    i know we've talked briefly about deferring any ppc builds but i
    was hoping (if not for any other reason, but to help further
    development of the unofficial and unsupported port) to post up on
    the wiki my methodology to install and get current using the most
    current ppc build at

    all in favor, say aye. all against, nay.

    if worse comes to worst and we'd rather not suggest ppc on the
    wiki, then i can always throw something on ubuntu forums but i
    personally tend to give more weight to the wiki than the forums.

    i'll add that i've been running mintppc as well and it is
    fantastic out of the box-- even better than debian ppc. i'm hoping
    to hack into the config files and see what's under the hood and
    see if i can't re-create it. possibly i might even be able to
    create an unattend file (mintppc install involves booting the
    debian netboot cd and issuing "auto url=mintppc.org
    <http://mintppc.org>" at the yaboot prompt) to make things even
    easier. if anyone's interested at least!

    lastly, is there anything i can do to help with the ppc builds?
    despite canonical's lack of support for ppc, it is the perfect
    platform for a lightweight linux like lubuntu, so i'm motivated to
    help make it happen.
