Getting binary support is just a mater of rebuilding packages for arm64.
I once did that for you setting-up a Jenkins machine just for
rebuilding. It's really a shame that you guys aren't following that
road. You'd have all of my support if you did. I personally don't have
access to the necessary hardware for it, and wont use the arm64 repos...
