It's a good point.  My conclusion is that we'll tend to send things
upstream as much as possible and that Fedora ought to help make our job
easier.  That said, supporting us is really vital to continued, active,
and continuous improvement of the PPC Linux platform.  It is *not* a
lucrative business, so literally every set of CD helps. Even if you want
to run "stock" Fedora on your iBook instead of YDL, sending a few bucks
our way, certainly helps keep things rolling.
