Well, there is progress on the centos-ppc port but we're lacking
hardware resources ...
Well, I hang around in their IRC channels occasionally and already asked
on the mailing lists. I work at an ISP and could provide hosting (web
space, mailing lists, CVS/SVN, yadda yadda) and have a Power 275 machine
idling (besides several PPC Macs).
Unfortunately, I'm not able to say 'I have n hours spare time to help',
it really depends on my workload.
And don't forget that RHEL6 will only target IBM Power machines,
Sure, but PowerPC Apple hardware is outdated, anyways. (Don't get me
wrong, I like their PowerPC hardware; I didn't buy any Apple after their
switch, and I won't. But my dual G4 runs NetBSD. ;)
