Thank you Brian, Michael -

Great to hear that PowerPC will be included. However a backport from Natty would be preferable because one other critical fix is also included from upstream, along with other bug fixes (quoted below from their release notes).

Is there a procedure for an end-user to request a backport?

Thanks again,
jayseye
