Subject:  [Maverick] [PATCH 0/9] Drop support for ia64 and sparc

Earlier in the Maverick release cycle the Tech Board had posted an
announcement [1] that we'd decommission support for the Ubuntu sparc and
ia64 ports at Feature Freeze (ie Thurs Aug 12) if no interested parties
stepped forward to take over maintenance.  No one has stepped forward to
take ownership.  The Tech Board has subsequently voted (and approved) to
decommission support for both these ports archs [2].  The following set
of patches drop support for ia64 and sparc from our Maverick kernel.

Luke, I've CC'd you on this just to give you a heads up since you've
been maintaining the ubuntu-maverick-ports-meta git tree at the moment.

Thanks,
Leann
