Build validation


Do device builds that go on the website go through any kind of central validation?
Meaning do I have to trust the specific developer that made the build for my device or does the project take care of it?


No, if you are talking about the device builds in forum.
You just have to trust the author.

Note that some community authors (like me for R7800) offer all source code diffs and build scripts, so that you could rebuild "my version" by yourself.

The official builds at are automatic builds from official sources by buildbot. No humans involved :wink:


The device specific changes are minimal, made by a single person, everything else is built automatically for all platforms.
