The linuxppc-* trees?  They really aren't useful nowadays.  Maybe the
linuxppc-2.4 tree should be, assuming Marcelo switches to git, and
there's some desire to continue the practice of letting work that's done
vs 2.4 exist somewhere in the community and added to.

But for 2.6, thankfully, folks are either using quilt (or similar) to
track their own work, or a project-specific tree, which I fully expect
to become git trees.  I think we can finally kill the notion of a
'master' PPC tree that's not Linus' tree, via Andrew's tree.
