[swift-dev] Highlighting other platforms for Swift?

Hi Ron,

This is a great question.

We’re actively setting up support to wire in up externally hosted CI bots to our CI infrastructure so that the community can help support the bringup and testing of Swift on other platforms beyond the officially supported platforms.  The tentative rollout for that was December.  We’ll announce more details once we get closer to rollout.

With that in mind, we’d definitely be interested in highlighting platforms that are being brought up, especially those actively tested in CI, prominently on Swift.org <http://swift.org/>.  I’m also interested in highlighting other bring-up efforts as well (say those without CI testing), although possibly with much less emphasis.  The nice thing about projects that are being actively tested during development is that it provides a transparent read to the community on how actively maintained that platform actually is.

That said, do you have specific ideas on how such efforts should be highlighted on swift.org <http://swift.org/>, and what should be the optics?
