Quick catchup on this :

There are a few people interested in the s390x side of things, but there 
does not seem to be too much hardware / resources around to help. Ray 
Hand has offered to pick up on this and I will be working with him to 
get the builds done on real iron. We are also going to concentrate on 
s390x only for the time being. If there really are people who want s390 
as well, we can address that independently.

Given this situation, we can still keep the door open for a s390(x) 
specific SIG to come up, but unless there are atleast a few people who 
want to get actively involved with the process and help out, it might be 
too much of an overhead to handle for only 3 people's involvement.

But yes, please make noise and actively promote the idea. I will blog ( 
to planet.centos.org ) and get this into facebook / twitter etc as well. 
Everyone else should too :D
