Comment 1 Fedora Admin XMLRPC Client 2012-03-15 13:56:55 EDT
This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database.  Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
Comment 2 Cole Robinson 2012-07-10 07:30:23 EDT
We no longer have a way to build openbios, which qemu-system-ppc requires. However qemu distributes bios binaries already, so hopefully we can get a packaging exception for those, and revive qemu ppc.
Comment 3 Cole Robinson 2012-10-30 21:05:16 EDT
We have revived qemu-system-ppc on F18+ but we won't be backporting this change to F16 given the age of the distro. Closing as CURRENTRELEASE
