Calling all Debian junkies!!!  The #PowerLinux family of Linux community distributions is being extended to include +Debian.  Feel free to chip in on the development effort.

For those who like technical details, this port is 64-bit only (no 32-bit application support), runs only IBMs newest POWER8 processors, and begins life supporting the new OPAL firmware which runs under KVM on Power.

We have a great start and would love assistance from anyone who wants to help!!!
