Overall, this was a VERY smooth install!
Because this was a installation intended to test the installer, the
target partition was an extra partition on an already running system.
Therefore, I was not able to test the installers ability to create and
use the NewWorld partition (previous installs had problems with this).
The network detection, which failed on previous installs, worked
flawlessly with this install.
The only problem I had was that the installer reconfigured yaboot
without asking me if I wanted to keep the configuration that I already
had. Although this is not a major problem, it would be nice if I had the
choice between keeping the existing configuration or installing a new
one. This would only be necessary if the installer detected an existing
yaboot installation. As such it would not have to interfere with the
"automatic" installation of yaboot for users installing for the first
Thanks to the developers for a easy and powerful installer!!
Install logs and other status info is available in

yaboot-installer is no longer used, powerpc and ppc64 ports have moved to grub.

When closing bugs due to packages being removed from the archive, a
versioned -done message should be used, with the version being the last
version in Debian with +rm appended to the version. Doing so.
