Hopefully once the new ISOs are out (sometime in the next week or so, I hear)
the wiki will be updated for both x86 and PPC (since the new ISOs will

File a bug and we'll try to add those to the ISO as optional packages (unless
there's a reason not to. ;) We'll have to talk to the ISO Team about that.)
