That's what we *IMHO* have "Packaging SIGs" for - see
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/SIGs/

Quoting:
----
=== General ===
Comps
Games
GNOME
KDE
Laptop
Mono
Music and Media Production
Objective CAML (OCaml)
Perl
PHP
Python
QA
Ruby
Scientific and Technical
Server Tools
VoIP
Embedded Systems Development

=== Arch specific ===

x86-64 (sometimes also named x64, AMD64, EM64T, x86_64, ia32e)
PPC/PPC64
----

But as you are not aware of it and not part of the ppc/ppc64 SIG ;-) it
seems to me we need to document the working areas of those SIGs better
and encourage packagers to ask those SIGs for help when they need them
(if the SIGs do such work).

Not ever more mailing lists please. We have to much of them IMHO already.
