I think such a page is bound to become outdated, so I’m reluctant to
adding it.

Also, supporting an architecture has a significant cost (software
maintenance, hardware, CI, etc.).  Thus, we’ll probably only target
reasonably popular architectures, or architectures that are promising
from a free software perspective.
