I had tried something similar, but with Github actions


I didn't have the time to pursue this further. I am fine
with Gitlab as well.

Ye. IIRC Sascha disables these for his build tests..? Would be nice to get
those resolved sometime.

Could we just fetch them from the correct location? That way we could

fakes are fine.

My GA script supports openrisc. Perhaps Jules is interested in getting
CI working for kvx as well once we have the infrastructure in place?

Any thoughts on how/if to integrate with the mailing list?
