Yes. I am glad to help on this effort. We still have that "POWER minicloud"
program and I think we can deploy a ppc64 image to be used as a build server
On the other hand, the DSA has two POWER8 machines that they use to build powerpc
and ppc64el. Maybe they can create another VM on one of those to be the ppc64
buildd. This would be better for the ppc64 port, if we can have DSA building it in
a DSA managed buildd. Did you try to talk to the DSA already?
Anyway, one way or another, I glad to help!
