At which point we can create the first CentOS 7 ppc64le VMs and rebuild c7.01.02-ppc64le atop CentOS 7 instead of Fedora 21.

The latest CentOS 7 ppc64le tally is 1983 of 2523 source packages building or 78% complete. Hit a small snag with the atlas package not building that I didn’t run into before. Thinking it may be due to the single core on the Fedora 21 builder VM. Once atlas builds, the rest the source packages should fall into line in short order. java-1.7.0-openjdk is built as are most of the apache/jpackage/maven stack.
