Hi Javier,

That would probably be for the AltArch-SIG , already building CentOS 7 for
 - IBM Power 8 (ppc64, ppc64le)
 - aarch64 (aka ARMv8 , 64bits)
 - armhfp (aka ARMv7 , 32bits)
 - i686

But the s390 question was raised already in the past, but finding :
- people willing to bootstrap the rebuild
- on dedicated hardware donated to the project (yeah, difficult part)
is a "challenge" :)
