OK, I posted a request for Lubuntu PPC testers on the Apple User forum . .
. sans your quoted material . . . .  I'll see if that stirs up anything . .
. in a "formal" sense of the word.

In the meanwhile I visited the QA tracker, and the report that "zero"
testing has been done is not entirely accurate, as it looks like "erhard-f"
filed some bug reports and passed some aspect of Lubuntu . . . which in
comparison to the other options is not that much different . . . .

Looking around, the only Lubuntu Xenial QA slot that is still "testing" is
now, the "daily" other "final" and the ".1" have been "archived."  Looking
somewhere else the Lubuntu PPC options have a line strike through them . .
. so technically the only tests left to be done are the "daily" iso???

So, I'm typing this in my iBook G4, running Lu 16.04, other than the fan
blowing all of the time it has to think, it's fine--ready for primetime in
PPC-land.  My new phone company, the one that took over Verizon landline
has my DSL throttled down to less than 2 MB/sec . . . I don't have time to
play with downloading a daily, my install went well with the beta . . . for
sure I mentioned this at various junctures . . . doesn't seem like there is
any test to do for the beta . . . updated/upgraded as of today???

I vote for kicking it out and see how many people download the PPC iso . .
. it's kind of wimpy to have it be this close to release, but then, not . .
. .  Hopefully there will be some boost from the sub-forum . . . .
