Compile existing github code to a new architecture

Asked by Andres Rodriguez Reina on 2020-02-29

I want to import the github code used to build armhf raspberry pi binaries in http://archive.raspbian.org which are hosted at https://github.com/raspberrypi/userland and build them for a new architecture & distribution: arm64 ubuntu eoan.

I would like to have new updates automatically occur through code import, build and publish them in a ppa.

What would be the best approach for my target? Is it fine to code-import from a github repo I do not own? Can the build and publish to ppa process be automated?

cjwatson can correct if I'm wrong, but you can import the github code to a project you own in Launchpad, and automate the packaging using this guide: https://help.launchpad.net/Packaging/SourceBuilds.

We have builders for eoan/arm64 machines in our build farm, so you should be fine.

About importing a github repository you do not own, please check the repository's LICENSE.

Can you help with this problem?
