Install Repo tool
# Make a directory where Repo will be stored and add it to the path $ mkdir ~/bin $ PATH=~/bin:$PATH # Download Repo itself $ curl https://storage.googleapis.com/git-repo-downloads/repo > ~/bin/repo # Make Repo executable $ chmod a+x ~/bin/repo
# Create a directory for the source files # This can be located anywhere (as long as the fs is case-sensitive) $ mkdir crDroid $ cd crDroid # Install Repo in the created directory $ repo init -u https://github.com/crdroidandroid/android.git -b 13.0 --git-lfs
This is what you will run each time you want to pull in upstream changes. Keep in mind that on your first run, it is expected to take a while as it will download all the required Android source files and their change histories.
# Let Repo take care of all the hard work $ repo sync
# Run to prepare our devices list $ . build/envsetup.sh # ... now run $ lunch lineage_devicecodename-buildtype $ m bacon

Why not share your build over your beloved forums?

So posted on forums and your users are enjoying your build.
Well you can help out your users by letting them know when you fix stuff in your builds with the help of our OTA app.
Since crDroid Oreo, if you want to be on the official maintainers list, you'll need to provide OTA access.
You can set it up really easy by reading android_vendor_crDroidOTA repo description.
