Tehnick, thanks for asking. There are no current plans to make armel generally available but that's not to say it will not happen at some point. Sorry I don't have a specific answer.

It's a pity. Thanks.

There are plans, but no concrete timeline. It's a difficult problem due to the lack of a secure, performant virtualisation solution for ARM devices.

https://blueprints.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+spec/other-arm-n-public-panda-ppa-build-cluster is the spec about developing a safe way to do it without virtualisation.
