@zwass hello, I am building fleet for arm64 successfully on ubuntu 20. Given that ARM based servers seem to be the future of the cloud with AWS Graviton, Ampere Altra CPUs currently being used by many as lower cost options, is there any reason in particular why you guys don't supply the built arm64 binary?

@Mystery Incorporated there's no reason in particular. Can you please file an issue detailing any steps you needed to take to make the build work -- we can work on adding this in future releases.

@zwass all I do is I follow the official steps for fleet to build it. I am not doing anything outside of your published instructions that's why I am so perplexed that arm binaries are not being built!

I did have to install python 2, I don't know if that is arm specific though I'd think probably not.

We can hopefully configure goreleaser to add those binaries automatically. There's some CGO that complicates things but hopefully not too much.

@zwass if you require an arm VM to do it, oracle cloud gives free 4 core 24GB RAM server so you can utilise that to make binary for free if you need to do it on specific arm platform.

@zwass thanks, the reason why I push for this idea is I fear the day that you guys use a new library or something that breaks the build for ARM. And so if you guys build for ARM, then you will detect issues like that. before release.

Yeah totally makes sense

@zwass bummer looks like it flopped.
