At the time I wrote to the list, the only available PPC ISO was an old daily, NOT the most current. Also, there still has never been an official release build of Oneiric. At this time, I see 12.04 in the dailies. So I'd be happy to test that but I'd like to write instructions for Oneiric. Any chance of getting an official release build?

Sorry for the delay.
I didn't understand if you tested the last PPC ISO from daily build or not ? If it's working, it can be considered as an unofficial ISO.
Also, it's possible to make it official for 12.04, but we need people available to test Alpha and Beta ISO, during ISO testing process.

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'

     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.
