This sounds great. IBM has ported Swift to platforms including IBM
System z (mainframe) and it would be good to get CI integration so
that we can run "@swift-ci please test s390" when wanted.

Linking to releases and nightly builds from swift.org would also be
good, where they are available.

Python has a main https://www.python.org/downloads/ page and a
separate https://www.python.org/download/other/ page to point users at
non-official ports. That model could work well for Swift too.
