@PalinuroSec not sure what you mean by official support? It is an open source project, and I am happy to accept pull requests.

Would you want to run LBS directly on ARM hardware, or do you want to cross compile?

I had a quick go at attempting to create an LXC container on Ubuntu 16.04, along the lines of

apt-get install qemu-user-static
lxc-create -n armhf01 -t ubuntu -- -a armhf -r xenial

Unfortunately, the network connection was not established.

Another attempt would be to check if a newer version of qemu would work better. So you could try Ubuntu 17.10 and see if lxc containers with qemu for arm would work there.

I have no use case for ARM packages myself, so it really is up to you, if you can get it to work. If you need any advice, let me know!

i'm both interested in having native arm workers and virtual environments.

i don't have enough spare time but i'll put this project on my todo list in the hope of contributing to it

why lxc and not sbuild containers based on schroot?
