Termux is already bringing a terminal and debian package manager to Android.

Let's see if we can reuse it and provide a base system with zypper and build openSUSE:Factory for it in OBS.

Afterwards we should try to sync with termux project, maybe we can join there to have only one app which allows the selection.

      There is good documentation for compiling packages for Termux and explaining the differences to usual Linux distributions.

      The current state is:

      • I am able to create rpms built on x86_64 hosts which can be installed
      • Succeeded in packaging android ndk. (binary only form could not be used due to license issues)
      • basic build description parser exists
      • code for automatic packaging host devel packages is being written atm

      Missing steps: * finish packaging and create a bootstrap image * adapt termux app for offering a selection of our repository (currently blocked by lack of memory for android-studio (have only 16GB) and problem with gfx driver)

      NDK licenses review still ongoing ... I will only continue on this project if we can provide the NDK in build.opensuse.org.
