We do not produce arm64 backports for Stretch, because I don't have
access to an arm64 instance to build packages. It would also be a lot of
manual work, and I'm not sure I would have the time for it. However, I
could help you setting that up, it's not very hard. Also, Debian
official (ie: Sid, Buster) has arm64 packages, and it will be in Buster.

If you want to contribute to the Debian packaging, it's done in the
Gitlab instance of Debian:


Contributors are very much welcome!

Why not switching to Rocky right now, which has been the most tested?
