Let me emphasize: we *need* testers. I want us to quit having a
more-than-10-month-old ISO as soon as we can. This means we need the test
series ironed out quickly.
Also, we need devel testers. Right now, devel has been quiet for some
days because of test coming out, but soon, there will be devel ISOs
again with all the changes and features planned for the 0.9.6 stable
release. They need testers too.

Yes. PPC *absolutely* needs testers! I didn't release a -test ISO on ppc
because it seems nobody has tested the devel ones yet. I have no ppc box
here, so I can't test them on a secondary box like I do the x86 ISOs.
I haven't managed to boot our ISO in pearpc yet.
And we do want a ppc 0.9.5, don't we?
So to summarize: We need testers. Lots of testers ;-)
Especially ppc, very much on the -test branch, and if you'd like to
help out active development, you can try out the latest devel ISOs
as soon as they come out again.
