Where do you want architecture-specific bugs to be filed? Is there some
component in Bugzilla for ppc64le issues?
As per standard package process each architecture has a tracking bug
where you file a bug against the package and link it to the bug for
the architecture as a blocker. The POWER blocker alias is PPCTracker
WebKit disables its heap security features ppc64le due to the 64 KB
page size. But reporting the bug to upstream would be pointless,
because upstream does not care about ppc64le. Reporting the bug against
webkit2gtk3 on Red Hat Bugzilla would mean reporting to myself, also
not very useful.
But if you link it to the PPCTracker you'll find the associated team
looks at it. Having done a number of architecture boot straps and
dealt with various teams at IBM during that they are quite responsive
and from my experience once they're aware of issues they engage with
upstream and get things fixed.
