11 I see two scenarios - either we get the "slow" arches enough cpu- and
12 manpower, or we remove their stable keywords.
14 If possible I think we should try to keep stable keywords. So how can we
15 help? I'm not sure how I could help e.g. PPC - I don't have any hardware
16 I can test on, and I'm not aware of remotely accessible dev boxen.
18 So - how can we improve this situation?
