I can also host a buildd at home, no restrictions AFAICT.
Administration can be handled remotely by a DD if I'm not able to do
the job properly and/or I'm not being trusted.  I can't participate
with a hardware donation, unfortunately, with three grown-up children
and a chronically ill wife on my neck.

I don't understand either.  I guess DSA are upgrading the last hosts
to stretch as jessie is nearing to EOL.  Or they need the machines for
some other services.

My impression was that the release team would not bless an
architecture if it doesn't use the default init system.  Also, certain
sets of packages will not work properly without systemd.

Apparently no as that would rule out GNU/Hurd.  There's no stable
release for ia64 that is being resurrected/bootstrapped at the moment.
