As I've found out doing some installs, we need to check if the images being provided from the projects support ARM based builds. An example of this is https://hub.docker.com/_/traefik?tab=tags. An example of a project not doing it Keycloak (although there are community images).

Then we need to take into consideration, ARM v6/7/8 compat.

e.g. https://hub.docker.com/r/459below/mariadb-armv7/tags

Also 32/64 bit archs! This one works for 3b+:

https://hub.docker.com/r/mihaibob/keycloak

Problematically, these other images don’t always support _FILE conventions :(

I think overall point for now is that "no, we don't support ARM" because it would involve some serious extra resources to build up a reliable pipeline of builds which we just can't handle right now.

After speaking with some SBC people, it seems like a better idea to stick with boards that do x86 arch so you don't run into this issue. So, the original idea to get https://www.hardkernel.com/shop/odroid-h2plus/ seems to be a good one.

I'll leave this open so we can document this whenever we get public docs.

Maybe we can add a column for ARM support to the Coop Cloud app list tracker document? Maybe not something for the initial release tho - in which case we should update the "from a Raspberry Pi" language...
