It will continue until we transition to an external build system.
Since there is lots of software to write for that, it's a ways off.

Then, if we have sufficiently capable volunteers to make sure that the
PPC kernel works on Fedora, and people or organizations willing to
provide sufficiently speedy hardware for the external build systems,
it can keep going.  Basically, we will need to have ongoing architecture
support for the distribution in order to have a build system.
