Hey everyone! Been a long time, more than a year in fact!

I've decided I it's time. I want to port some software to AROS. But... how? How do I even get a compiler working here? I see the network situation has improved since last I complained.

Also, where did IRC go? I tried to look for #aros and #aros.dev on LiberaChat. I was kind of expecting it to be there since all the cool projects abandoned FreeNode. I don't quite get what happened over there because the less I know the details of Internet drama, the better, trust me. I noticed they removed my username and the FreeBSD cape I had on it after I managed to connect. The nerve!

Hello

The IRC channel seems to me that no longer exists, to compile it is better to do so under Linux but maybe someone more expert than me can help you, usually the aros springs are filled and then proceed with the work of portings

i see this

I would strongly prefer that all AROS compilations in my pipelines are self-hosted. What I also want to achieve by the end of the day is to have AROS as a first-class citizen in Jenkins among Windows, Linux, FreeBSD and macOS. This would be so cool! And I'm willing to foot the work to pave this road if need be.

The AmigaDev discord is good suggestion. There is also AROSExec discord server available.

As to your initial post, I don't understand what do you mean by making AROS first class citizen. If you want to port software there are essentially two supported method: either you compile directly under AROS, which can be running on either real hardware, virtual hardware or in hosted mode under linux/window or you cross-compile from linux.
