Great, thanks for the kind offer.

I think the effort is already underway, leaded by Fedora's Steven M. Parrish:


I also think that Martin Dengler is working on this as well, but I'm
not sure how their work relates to each other.

So testing seems like something that is needed, though I would like to
know what is required in order to say that one of these builds is
ready to be deployed somewhere. Maybe Steven, Daniel, Martin or others
have already thought about this? Afterwards we can count the people
interested in helping and maybe even write a tentative roadmap.

I'm adding devel at lists.laptop.org to CC because development seems to
happen there.
