There are options, an older Playstation III with a faulty Blu-Ray drive
is still usable as a PPC64 (32UL) test box. For developers that actively
want to help, perhaps the arch teams can recommend hardware that is
relatively easy to acquire and guaranteed to be supported/stable from a
kernel point of view.
I've done my best to supply an example.
