Thank you for your interest and willingness to help. The easiest way to
reach the folks working on the PPC support in Fedora is either via the
mailinglist or even more direct via IRC on freenode. Keep in mind
though that at least Dan Horak, Karsten Hopp, Adrian Reber and Jiri
Skala are located in Europe, so depending on your timezone you might
have more luck with the mailinglist.
We'll be adding tracker bugs for the various secondary archs for which
we want to do a release for Fedora 16 in the next few days, so if you
find an issue you can then link it to those tracker bugs.
