According to Dirk, there are indeed no plans for armv7l or armv6l.
Too bad. :(
Apart from no one volunteering to bootstrap the build, e.g. using 13.2,
we are currently very limited on armv7l build power (our Arndale boards
broke, need to find time to debug) and the time before the Leap
repository gets frozen for release seems insufficient to get a full
build done under the circumstances.
We could disable armv7 Factory build for a week or so, to be able to build Leap. That was
done for previous releases.
armv6l building under linux-user emulation would be even slower
(déjà-vu: 13.2) and is getting only little love in Tumbleweed already.
armv6 is only (or almost) for RPi 1. So, Tumbleweed for this one seems ok to me.
But we support lots of armv7 boards, so not having it for leap sounds very bad. :(
AArch64 is supported by Leap, but it seems there are not much boards available for a

You are of course free to try rebuilding Leap in a private OBS
installation and report whether everything builds and works.
It is a very big task and not very easy to do. (Is there a how-to somewhere?)
If you know companies that would sponsor more virtualization-capable
ARMv7-A hardware (Cortex-A7/-A15/-A17) or AArch32-capable ARMv8-A
hardware, ideally supported in the mainline kernel and with sufficient
RAM, feel free to reach out to them.
Cortex-A7 is designed to be low power and is not powerful. (RPi2 is a quad-core A7 with 1
GB of RAM and using it as an OBS worker is quite bad (done in packman).)
I use a SabreLite (iMX6) as an OBS worker for a while and it is very good. (Stable and
powerful). But this is a quad-core cortex-A9 (not virtualization-capable).
Do you really need virtualization? If you want to run qemu (not chroot), you could just do
it on cortex-A9. No?
One solution could be to allow some ARMv7 boards to connect to OBS (using VPN). But I
think OBS worker network is closed (not able to reach Internet), for security reasons.
