Re: [Stretch] Status for architecture qualification

Recent traffic on this list has discussed Debian on PowerPC and
big-endian vs little-endian.

The next-generation US national laboratory facilities are to be based
on PowerPC, and one source that I read mentioned little-endian, likely
for binary file compatibility with files produced on Intel x86 and
x86-64 CPUs: see


The size, and budget, for such facilities suggests that there may be
financial support for Linux operating-system work on them.
