I would help with this transition to use GRUB on powerpc as well
as on ppc64 which we are now providing unofficial installation
for in Debian Ports .
I do have commit access to debian-installer and its components
as well as access to an IBM POWER7 instance which can be used
to test both powerpc as well as ppc64 installation images.
I would like to get rid of yaboot because it is no longer maintained
upstream and switching to GRUB also helps reduce the maintenance
burden in debian-installer.
What we need are people who are willing to extensively test d-i
images with GRUB on powerpc and ppc64 and report back. Also, I'm
not yet sure whether I have understood how exactly GRUB is properly
configured and used on powerpc and ppc64.
