I cannot answer that question, but I can suggest a strategy I’ve used over the years in absence of that. That is to download an SRPM from upstream, unpack it, patch the spec. file, and build it. At one time, I had automated cron jobs that looked for new packages and sent me email about stuff I needed to build for my platform – the manual building was not so hard, but checking what needed to be built was rather a chore.
I’m a baby Fedora Project member myself, and I just created my first Fedora Copr project hoping to answer the question whether PPM is an available architecture. I didn’t see a box for architecture, but maybe I’m just missing it – if it is there, you might well be able to just rebuild on Fedora Copr and the repositories would be available to you.

We run RHEL on IBM pSeries (ppc64) - which is mostly all types of awesome. However.
Is there any future for SCL on a ppc platform?
I'm specifically looking at PHP, which is 5.4.16 for RHEL7. Unfortunately, PHP 5.4 is being EOL'd in a couple weeks, and while RH will support 5.4 with security patches...only.... RHEL 8 is not even in sight, and applications will be requiring higher versions of PHP. I'd love to offer our customers a "modern" PHP in the next year... but other than us going back to compiling our own stack...
Thanks for any info or even rumours or innuendo. :)
cheers and thanks,
