Self-hosted runner on ppc64el architecture?

Hi,

Are there plans to support the ppc64el/ppc64le (POWER) architecture for self-hosted Linux-based GitHub Action runners? Considering that both Debian, Ubuntu, and RHEL/CentOS already support this architecture. At the time of writing, it seems that only amd64, armhf, and aarch64 architectures are supported…

I know it’s kinda niche, but I’m developing software that is able to run on this architecture, so I feel that I badly need this feature…

Highly unlikely. Our open-sourced runner is written using dotnet core which does not support the POWER architecture. I was able to find this: https://github.com/dotnet/runtime/issues/10055
