When and where to find version 0.2 for FP2, and will Fairphone 2 still be supported in /e/ version 1.0, the first stable release? Schermafdruk%20op%202019-01-22%2021-58-22

@pjmbraet as you may be aware we do not have a v0.2 branch for Fairphone FP2. /e/ like LineageOS is also dependent on device maintainers who volunteer to build the ROM for various devices. There are no timelines or ETA which can be provided as to when a device will be upgraded to Oreo.
In case you are interested in building the ROM on your own for /e/ -
The instructions on how to build are available here : https://gitlab.e.foundation/e/wiki/en/wikis/build
There are two ways in which you can build one is the Docker way and recommend by /e/
The other is the non docker and slightly easier way and instructions for it can be found here https://gitlab.e.foundation/e/os/android
I have not tried building /e/ by the second method and am not sure if it does a good work of integration MicroG
In case you are interested in building the ROM yourself, you can check these links https://source.android.com/setup/build/requirements
There is a simple but very good video here https://www.androidauthority.com/build-custom-android-rom-720453/
Please note all this works perfectly when you have a device already supported by LineageOs 15.1.
You can check that here https://wiki.lineageos.org/devices/ FP2 already has a ROM on LOS 15.1 so it should not be a problem building its ROM with /e/ source code.
In case of devices not supported by LineageOS there is a totally different and more complicated process involved . I have not much an idea about un supported devices. Also we do not have any documentation for building ROM’s for un-supported devices on /e/ wiki’s and the literature around it on XDA or the net is also very vague. We plan to add some literature around this on the /e/ wiki in future.
