We just released Sxmo 1.11.1 to postmarketOS/alpine edge with a workaround for 32-bit architectures:

It's hilarious when someone who does not contribute to a project publicly objects when the project considers supporting an email-based workflow for patches.

In Antwerp and around (Belgium) it's Mother's day today. My mother died a long time ago... but hey, happy mother's day to all the mothers around here.
