I've submitted this twice to AO as a news item, haven't heard anything back.  So I'll post it again here as a normal post.

Acube and Nusim have formed a TeamAROS Bounty to port AROS to SAM440.  Official bounty will be open as soon as the AROS Devs have had enough time to give input on the bounty's description.

So I guess this means that AROS-PPC will be kept up to date...  Hope for the Gamecube build is lifted...

It's on the news now.  There seems to have been a bit of a backlog.

If it runs on GC, it runs on Wii via emualtion.  A couple of tweaks and you can access a whole DVD5 disc when running on the Wii via GC emulation.  So for all intents and purposes a GC port is a Wii port.

I'm sill waiting/hoping for a memory exploit to run unsigned code in native Wii mode since the Wii's memory structure is different then the GC.

The GC has computational power equivalent to Efika.  Efika is priced right but the GC is fully exploited and documented.  With all the addon hardware that Efika needs, a GC setup is still cheaper despite needing some addons as well.

Back on topic:
I am happy to see AROS expanding to more platforms.
I see this bounty as a way to get people to buy SAM and run AROS.  I have long stated for a while that Hyperion should sell AROS "enhancements".  I'm sure Hyperion could sell enough individual enhancements/components to PPC AROS users that it would be functionally equivalent to "Hyperion OS" and not have any legal issues associated with it.  Hint...hint...
