Hello everyone, we’re glad to inform you about one of the projects
future plans will be going live soon we are working on and which is live now. A new build variant under the tag Community builds will be rolling out soon is rolling out for the some of the initial devices which do not wish or could not to make into our official list. These will also be used to move devices from official list in a case if maintainer is inactive, moved to a new device and may wish to continue builds for the device he/she had worked on, as they are already stable enough but may not be worked on further. This variant’s device sources are going to be solely maintained by its community maintainer/developer. Each one of them will be given access to our configs platform to carry out their preliminary test builds. Further on certain intervals our jenkins will perform automated release builds for all the community devices to the public users.
We see this as an oppurtunity for every budding developer/maintainer out there to sharpen their skills while learning and providing something to use for the device users. So, we welcome everyone that are interested, and those who were rejected earlier for official maintainership are free to re-apply. Every application will be verified and assigned a OFFICIAL/COMMUNITY tag for their device according to the applicants submitted details(device sources) and previous works if any.
This also helps many more users to run ArrowOS on their devices that aren’t officially supported.
More further details on the community edition builds advantages and changes/features will be announced at a later phase.
ArrowOS or the CORE team will not be responsible in anyway for the management of device sources of community devices. No supervision will take place over the incidents/issues caused or responsible by community edition builds.
