We can totally agree on that.
A build is not required to have any changes … there are builds which are just new builds without any changes. It’s automatic after all.
Nobody’s driving anybody.
But of course we’re then back to why daily builds? Well, I personally feel like letting them do things their way, it’s their project and I’m profitting from it for free.
Hmmm … perhaps I even donated, but if I can’t quite remember, perhaps a(nother) donation is due .
Nobody claims it would be more stable.
I think they indeed just take a regular LineageOS build every week and automatically patch it with their own changes.
Which reminds me … the next LineageOS for microG build probably will not boot … will have to check.
I don’t know how accurate the given implementation status really is.
microG is always mimicking Google as good as it can, but you simply don’t use it if you depend on Google-dependent Apps working 100%. Treat it as a nice bonus if it works for a particular App. There’s no hurt in trying.
Even if you get an App to run with microG, Google can break this any day by changing things on their side again so microG’s mimicking doesn’t match anymore and has to catch up again. It happens.
This sounds so perfect for an internet law (examples), with a little luck you are first to it and you can name it.
“All forms of criticism, even constructive ideas, concerning an Open Source effort or project, if pursued long and/or adamantly enough, automatically lead to someone saying you should program it yourself and/or donate.”
Legit (no smiley, I mean it). “Sacrebleu’s law”?
Absolutely, and your feedback in this Fairphone community forum is valid and interesting, but it changes absolutely nothing regarding how the LineageOS project does things, because this here is not a communication channel that is supposed to reach the LineageOS project.
So I did set some pointers in the general direction. Silly me .
