Build from source for ppc64le support

Based on https://www.mongodb.com/docs/manual/administration/production-notes/#platform-support

ppc64le is only supported for Enterprise version.

I’ve managed to build from source on ppc64le on RHEL 8.6. I have yet to test the functionality.

However, my question is, what does this actually means?

Does it means that the developer hasn’t fully tested (or don’t plan to test) the MongoDB Community version for ppc64le?

Or if there’s any issue, the community won’t entertain it?

Please advice.

Thanks!

Another issue that I can see is on applying fixes. You will have to manually pull and rebuild from source on the latest changes. Then manually apply the binaries on the servers.
