But the build infrastructure seems to be working quite well, at least
on every platform I tried (Linux x86 and arm and OSX) things work
pretty well and are relatively straightforward. I don't know about
Windows of course.
So are you providing binaries and/or hardware access to perform those
builds? I believe that would be more interesting in the long run.
