Another question the ftpmasters will likely have is what is the
relationship between ppc64 and ppc64el. Is there hardware that will
run ppc64 but not ppc64el? is there hardware that will run ppc64el
but not ppc64? is there hardware that will run both? what is the
relative prevalance of each of these. If most hardware that can run
ppc64el can also run ppc64 then are there significant technical
advantages other than compatibility with badly written software of
going little endian?

There is no ppc64 in Debian.
Not in debian proper but it is on debian-ports.org and it appears to be pretty healthy.
