OK... so here we are.
Trevor, myself and Steve hashed out a PPC64LE workflow that works alongside
the x86_64 workflow.
Our notes are here [1] .

Although x86_64 and PPC64LE should try their best to use the same container
build methods and process the workflows are completely independent and can
remain that way.   The convergence occurs on the tripleo-ci promotion
server after reading test results from the dlrn_api ( notes in the etherpad

Some additional points.
* Alan Pevec and I both agree getting the PPC hooked into a zuul workflow
would benefit everyone

OK... comment away and feel free to comment / update the etherpad.
