+ (body
+ (en "A new platform, powerpc64le-linux, has been added for
+little-endian 64-bit Power ISA processors using the Linux-Libre kernel. This
+includes POWER9 systems such as the
+RYF Talos II mainboard}. This platform is available as a \"technology
+preview\": although it is supported, substitutes are not yet available from
+the build farm, and some packages may fail to build. In addition, Guix System
+is not yet available on this platform. That said, the Guix community is
+actively working on improving this support, and now is a great time to try it
+and get involved!")))
