Was ppc really such a burden?

When it breaks and only it breaks, slowing down or delaying a release,
yes.



I know that last week several ppc people (IBM, etc) expressed alarm and concern about the demotion of ppc to a secondary arch. Most of those people I pointed at Bill and Jesse who were staffing the fedora booth.

Did we get any positive feedback/offers of help from them?

No. They heard that here would be a secondary arch effort and seemed to think "oh, they will fix it for us". Seems to be the running theme. People want ppc to stick around but nobody wants to work on it. That's why secondary arch seems right. People who care can work on it but lack of care won't hold Fedora back. Keep in mind that many upstreams (most?) don't have access or care about ppc. In the nonserver world ppc is dead.
