Current thoughts: The software world is still very focused on only providing x86 binaries and Docker images versus ARM. My self hosted stuff is all on Raspberry Pis, and a lot of other peoples are too.

We need more ARM software builds, and we need to make it easier to do.

You can technically cross build architectures with Docker/podman, but I’ve found it’s rather slow and a bit hit or miss. Thinking about putting something together to help address this, whether it be on an existing CI/CD provider or something slightly more custom.

Thinking about it maybe it’ll be better to put together a repository of metadata that builds on CircleCI or another provider that has ARM machines and pushes up to DockerHub or ghcr.

Of course I could probably just contribute to upstream projects with configurations…

That might be a better idea derp
