SPARC:

We have a full package tree for Fedora 9, but we do not have a
functional anaconda. We've been able to compose images, but when we try
to boot them, anaconda either never starts, or crashes immediately
during stage 1. We suspect that we're dealing with memory overwrites
from the bootloader, but have not had time to properly debug this.

We have a functional koji instance that builds for sparcv9 and sparc64
targets (as well as the variants for glibc [sparcv9v, sparc64v].

We have some packages built for F10, but not a full tree.
