Power8 PPC64 Linux VMs are available for Open Source communities at OSUOSL and other providers. How I can contact the OpenCV Buildbot / build farm administrators to connect a Power8 system?

@david-edelsohn , we already have nightly builder for powerpc: But it does not run tests and uses powerpc64le-linux-gnu-g++-7 toolchain from Ubuntu repositories (not IBM Advance). Isn't it enough to verify OpenCV on this platform?

Even if we add full test run on real hardware, we will not be able to fix raising issues because of limited core team resources.

Somehow I missed the powerpc system in the list. There had been some comments in one issue thread about the lack of a buildbot impacting the ability to support the platform.

I have opened some financial bounties to encourage developers inside or outside of the OpenCV community to address the enablement issues.
