qemu 2.0, which has just been uploaded to unstable, supports arm64.
Aside for usual threading caveats, it's good enough for most porting,
unlike mythical hardware no one but Wookey has seen.

The repository at debian-ports is not yet complete enough for debootstrap,
so you'd need Wookey's pre-made tarball or to steal some stuff from Ubuntu.
That's enough to play with arm64, and to check if "does my crap build?".

A tit a day keeps the vet away.
