If you don't get it fixed by the final freeze, we'll just epoch and
downgrade mono.  This kind of version change shouldn't really be made
after beta anyway.

The version change happened long before the beta, we have had SVN snapshots leading to 2.4 since the beginning of the F11 cycle. It was always the aim, stated to ship with it. It all of a sudden stopped compiling on PPC and nobody stepped forward for a clear solution. It's not like we bumped from 2.2 to 2.4 all of a sudden, it was a relatively minor change considering.

The last Mono to be compiled on PPC is close to 2.4, however we do not have some changes that was requested as well as the bugfixes in between. I am as of now unaware if the build failure is something that changed in the build system or Mono. Considering the relatively few changes that should be between the last SVN build and 2.4 final I am skeptical that it is the cause. Around the same time Mono started failing I also heard that PPC was acting weird for other people but that might be unrelated.

More in depth investigation is, and has been, requested. It's not like anyone enjoys leaving our users without a full Fedora experience regardless of their setup, it is a last resort to disable the build. It is however out of our hands, our capable PPC team will hopefully be able to track down the problem. I am hopeful they can put their thinking caps on and give us an answer as to what is causing it.
