Has anyone ported Slackware over for the POWER9?

I was just wondering if anyone has managed to successfully port over Slackware to run on POWER9 hardware such as the Talos II? Or, if anyone is planning on attempting it at some point?

Not that I'm aware of. There's a short thread on POWER8, but I don't know if anything came of it.

That Talos II board is a thing of beauty. I wonder how close we are to a (GL4.x, Vulkan capable) GPU without proprietary firmware. If such a thing existed, one might even be able to justify the cost of the POWER9 system.
