Alpine supports on Power

I am pleased to announce the Alpine Linux distribution has added support for Power systems with the recent release of Alpine 3.6.

Alpine uses different approaches[1] than traditional Linux distros, thus, they were able to build a very small footprint Linux image. Version 3.6 minirootfs for Power contains less than 2Mb[2]. This small footprint capability makes it heavily favored in the containers realm[3].

Please check the Release Notes for the 3.6 release:
