Once it’s in a -current ISO, I’ll give it a shot!

I’ve been thinking about this; would it make sense to merge the lists for the PowerPC-architecture ports under port-powerpc like the MIPS ports have been merged under port-mips?

The system-specific ports still have separate distributions since all the systems boot differently and may require different tweaks as a result, of course. However, having one primary architecture list may help ensure there’s a critical mass of people who can look at and respond to anything someone brings up, even if it’s not directly related to the system they’re using.
