Both PowerPC and SPARC are still supported by the infrastructure. It's
just that neither are currently a release architecture, but that shouldn't
stop you from using them.

For SPARC, just follow this guide to get Debian unstable up and running:

For PowerPC, you just install the latest Jessie release, then switch the
/etc/apt/sources.list from "jessie" to "unstable". Then perform a dist-upgrade
and you have an up-to-date Debian unstable running on powerpc with the latest
kernel and packages.
