CentOS 5 for PowerPC?

Does anybody know if there are plans for a PowerPC version of CentoOS? I tried the beta version of CentOS 4, but after what appeared to be a successful install, I could not boot it. It was as if a bootloader was never installed. So now I'm running Debian on my ancient G3 iMac. It works fine, but I'd really rather have Red you-know-what.

I know PPC is almost a dead architecture, but I it would be a shame to lose another distro for it.

we are going to do a ppc release, adn are already working on it.
