Okay the md5sum file is not updated, nor is the html in the README at the
top, however the three powerpc iso's are there now.

[   ] ubuntu-7.04-alternate-powerpc.iso       18-Apr-2007 21:03  698M  
[   ] ubuntu-7.04-desktop-powerpc.iso         16-Apr-2007 03:50  688M  
[   ] ubuntu-7.04-server-powerpc.iso          16-Apr-2007 01:12  531M  

And I was it appears wrong about them not being released at the same time,
it is simply that they were placed in the ports directory rather than the
main releases directory. Thus most people who mirror the iso images do not
also get these.

are you weary as water, in a faucet left dripping, with an incessant sadness
like a sad record skipping, and an ugly and ornery, and shadowy dread
lurking like a troll under the bridge, between your heart and your head
   Swing - To The Teeth - Ani
