as gcc5 is in Fedora22+ it is possible to build docker and its BRs using gcc-go with small changes to the spec files. Not only on x86_64, but also on ppc64le, even on s390x(sharkcz tried) and ppc64. It crashes/hangs sometimes(I'm looking in to it) but works on x86_64 and ppc64(le) most of the time :) (haven't done any extensive testing yet) and haven't tried s390x yet.
Github repo with modified spec files of docker and its BRs:
x86_64 COPR repo(f22/f23):
ppc64(le) fedorapeople.org repo(f22):
ppc64(le) base images(just to test it ;) ):
docker pull jcajka/fedora22-ppc64[le] (I hope images are there as they are not showing up in webUI)
(were generated using https://github.com/docker/docker/blob/master/contrib/mkimage-yum.sh modified to install also dnf(yum), would be great to have base images available same way as on primary)
s390x coming soon :)
It is definitely not production ready and needs lots of testing/debugging. Looking forward for any feedback.
