boinc-app-milkyway binary package in Ubuntu Precise powerpc

 The goal of Milkyway@Home is to use the BOINC platform to harness
 volunteered computing resources in creating a highly accurate three
 dimensional model of the Milky Way galaxy using data gathered by the
 Sloan Digital Sky Survey. This project enables research in both
 astroinformatics and computer science.
 In computer science, the project is investigating different optimization
 methods which are resilient to the fault-prone, heterogeneous and
 asynchronous nature of Internet computing; such as evolutionary and
 genetic algorithms, as well as asynchronous newton methods. While in
 astroinformatics, Milkyway@Home is generating highly accurate three
 dimensional models of the Sagittarius stream, which provides knowledge
 about how the Milky Way galaxy was formed and how tidal tails are
 created when galaxies merge.
 This package contains the Milkyway@home application for the BOINC
 distributed computing platform.
 Note that this package has been primarily created for users of
 architectures for which Milkyway@home does not provide its application.
 If your architecture is x86 or AMD64 the BOINC client automatically
 downloads the latest Milkyway@home application if you participate in this
 project. There is no need to install this package then.
