I certainly interested in anything that interests ATrpms users. What
is needed to build ARM packages? Can one cross-build on x86_64? qemu?
But Brian is also right, the current pressing matter is to alter the
infrastructure in such a way to allow more contributors to have higher
levels of access including root access to some resources. ATM ATrpms
is hosted at the FU Berlin, and Jens Dreger, both a good friend of
mine and one of the higher IT responsibles around there, wants to help
upgrading/restructuring the hardware setup allowing for more degrees
But how can we help you ATM? BTW we are also not using koji, but self
written scripts. But maybe for scaling reasons koji does make
sense. So perhaps you'd even like to kojify ATrpms even outside of
