The debian project has some powerpc machines (and we still build numpy
on those boxes when i upload a new revision to our archives) and they
also have hosts dedicated to let debian developers login and debug
issues with their packages on that architecture. I can sponsor access
to those machines for some of you, but it is not a place where you can
host a CI instance.

Just keep it in mind more broadly than powerpc, f.e. these are all the
archs where numpy was built after the last upload
(the grayed out archs are the ones non release critical, so packages
are built as best effort and if missing is not a big deal)

Thanks Sandro. It looks like even for the release-critical ones, it's just the build that has to succeed and failures are not detected? For example, armel is green but has 9 failures: https://buildd.debian.org/status/fetch.php?pkg=python-numpy&arch=armel&ver=1%3A1.12.0-2&stamp=1484889563&raw=0
