Contributed by Paul 'WEiRD' de Weerd on from the powerpc64-to-the-people dept.
Since we reported the first bits of powerpc64 support going into the tree on 16 May, work has progressed at a steady pace, resulting in snapshots now being available for this platform.
So, if you have a POWER9 system idling around, go to your nearest mirror and fetch this snapshot. Keep in mind that as this is still very early days, very little handholding is available - you are basically on your own.

OpenBSD/powerpc64 is being developed on Raptor Computing Systems Blackbird and Talos II systems, but is expected to run on all OpenPOWER (non-virtualized) POWER9 systems. Adding support for POWER8 system is planned but access to such a system would be needed to make progress in that direction.
