Boy, are you not looking very hard ;-)  On

IA-64 Linux Distributions
# Caldera Systems (initial release 8/4/00) Download at
# Debian (initial release 8/10/01) Download at
# Red Hat (initial release 5/17/00) Download at
# SuSE (initial release 6/13/00) Download at
# TurboLinux (initial release 3/13/00) Download at

I'd think that `initial release' is no longer a very useful thing to
have, so perhaps this list should be replaced by a list of `most recent
release' instead.  I don't see a `contact the webmaster' link, so maybe
he or she reads this list...

Debian released Woody in 2002.
SuSE announced: "Enterprise Server 8 is also available for [...] HP
Itanium 2-based servers, [...]"
Red Hat released AS & AW for ia64.

Not aware of any other announcements, but I don't follow that too closely.
