Thanks for mentioning this, I completely forgot that rebootstrap
also tests archs that aren't part of Debian or

That said: while I think rebootstrap is a great thing, I wouldn't
call that an actual port - mainly because there isn't actually a
repository where one can download the packages created by
rebootstrap the same way even the inofficial Debian ports have
official repositories, and because rebootstrap is run as a CI
system, it constantly recreates the packages from scratch, which
is not how the other Debian archives work at the moment. It's a
good place to start a new port if one wanted to though. In the
case of mips64 BE one would need to fix the documented problems
