[New: openFATE 320945] ppc64le on Debian-8.0, RHEL_7, xUbuntu_16.04
Feature added by: Daniel Black (grooverdan)

Feature #320945, revision 1
Title: ppc64le on Debian-8.0, RHEL_7, xUbuntu_16.04

Buildservice: Unconfirmed
Priority
Requester: Important

Requested by: Daniel Black (grooverdan)
Partner organization: openSUSE.org

Description:
Can build slaves for Debian-8, RHEL_7 and xUbuntu_16.04 be created for PPC64le
(ppc64el on Debian/Ubuntu).

The 64bit LE is a good target as IBM moved its POWER architecture to support
little endian.

Business case (Partner benefit):
openSUSE.org: Power8 little endian is a supported Ubuntu
(http://www.ubuntu.com/download/server/power8), Debian
(https://www.debian.org/ports/#portlist-released) and Redhat
(https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-US/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux/7/html/7.2_Release_Notes/chap-Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux-7.2_Release_Notes-Architectures.html).

Having OBS support ppc64el will assist distro users that want a later version
of various packages ahead of what their distro provides.
