I would like to learn how to crosscompile (so far i'm buiding on native
OSs) so Jenkins can do everything in the near future I hope.

I can draft some documentation for the different OSs if you want since
I'm busy anyway building for Linux, Mac OS and Windows. 

Also I wanted to ask: is it ok if I distribute installers? Of course
built with unaltered code.
...I'm kinda doing it alredy on Codeberg.

Let me know for the documentation I'm still doing builds on each OS for
