Hi Igor and All,

A LinuxPPC issue of Rev would be really helpfull, for me too... In the
past (1998/2002), my first MC/Rev development platform was the Suse
LinuxPPC and, because, my customers preferences for the x86 world, Suse
Linux x86 was my first deployment/production platform.

When Suse dicide to discontinue the LinuxPPC issue of its distro, and
because my last IBook2.2 was no more supported by the Suse 7.3 issue
(XFree86), i switched to YellowDog 3... In the same time, Scott decide
to discontinue the LinuxPPC edition of a MC 2.5 engine, in considering
that it would be more difficult to compile the 2.5 engine for LinuxPPC
than to invite two customers (was, Andu Novac and me) switch to the x86
development/deployment platform...

So ! I'm sure Scott was fully right and i'm sure, too, that a Rev's
LinuxPPC engine could be back, if enough of us let the Rev's team know
about : please, if possible, give us a LinuxPPC engine back ;-)
