Users of Debian/m68k. There is also an openSuSE port for m68k by Andreas Schwab.

All systems with m68k CPUs.

There is still very active support for m68k in the Linux kernel, the
toolchain and in Debian. The largest part of this change is adding atari.c
which is self-containing, so there isn't that much to be maintained about
this minus the few compile patches here and there. Note that we also
have support for amiga partition tables in parted.
Are you one of the parted maintainers?
