Status of PPC

Hey, Gerard --

Since OpenSUSE dropped its PPC version recently, I believe it leaves only
Fedora and Debian with PPC versions of their distros -- at least among the
major ones (I'd be happy to know if this is true, or if there are others).

If this warrants an announcement, I don't know. I believe you can still
download a PPC version from the download page, though, so I am not sure what
the standard procedure is for announcing releases when it comes to different

Also, I don't remember a PPC announcement for F12, but I could have missed

Anyway, whatever is best, I'm OK with.
