It was originally decreed by the Board that we wouldn't drop PowerPC
from being a primary architecture until some other architecture has
actually shown that the infrastructure for secondary architectures is
working.

We still don't have any secondary architectures gearing up to ship
Fedora 11 -- it would be really interesting to know why that is.

What technical barriers are still there -- why don't we have a release
yet?

I think that at this point it's acceptable to leave the fate of the port
to the people who most care about it -- but if there are infrastructure
or other problems which would block a release _regardless_ of how hard
the port maintainers work, that's less reasonable.

So a report from our existing secondary architecture teams on why they
haven't managed to release yet would be useful input to next week's
meeting.
