Does anyone know why there is no ppc ebuild for Banshee (the music player/database)?
Is it a technical reason, or are we lacking interest or a maintainer?

It has not been tested on ppc yet. Feel free to test it out and let us know (via bugzilla) if it works for you:

I put it in bugzilla, but here are the results after build and 30 minutes of testing:

Banshee depends on gst-plugins-taglib, which is also missing keyword ppc, so had to ekeyword both.

Everything built without error.
Core functions of Banshee seem flawless. iPod functions work, but some bugs (plugging in iPod when Banshee was running crashed Banshee on my single attempt at that, and attempting a mass 10 GB import from iPod stalled at 15%).

All-in-all, without extensive testing, it looks like Banshee is okay for ~ppc and likely stable on ppc as is.
There may be bugs related to integration of libipod or ipod-sharp or those components, but build, function and can be tested.

I tested Banshee about a year ago thought it was buggy but looked promising. Now I think it's fairly refined and highly usable, with a lot of functionality that is transparent to the user.

I've tried it on ppc64 , i needed to "ekeyword" a few packages , but it fails to emerge ( several different versions of) mono with same error

configure: error: No JIT or interpreter support available or selected.

!!! Please attach the following file when filing a report to bugs.gentoo.org:
!!! /var/tmp/portage/dev-lang/mono-1.2.4/work/mono-1.2.4/config.log

!!! ERROR: dev-lang/mono-1.2.4 failed.
Call stack:
ebuild.sh, line 1615: Called dyn_compile
ebuild.sh, line 972: Called qa_call 'src_compile'
ebuild.sh, line 44: Called src_compile
mono-1.2.4.ebuild, line 85: Called econf '--with-preview=yes' '--with-glib=system' '--with-gc=included' '--with-tls=__thread'
ebuild.sh, line 578: Called die


not being a programming expert , can any kind person help me understand the error ?

Mono probably isn't supported on ppc64 yet.
