Parrot for Pi

It looks like the official Parrot OS Raspberry Pi builder is located on GitHub?

And the image builder is here

I noticed it would try to build Parrot 3.5 (very old build) if I had the proper signing key. Should I bother tinkering with anything or just leave this alone until a competent developer has time to work on it? I’m willing to assist in testing (on a 3B+), but I imagine any possible future focus would mainly be on the Raspberry Pi 4. My apologies for creating a Raspberry Pi post, when there are others. I tried the latest headless image for Raspberry Pi, but am having lack of knowledge issues setting up wireless from the command line. LOL

I see now that there has been recent activity on linux-rpi.

Parrot is, in my opinion, the best pentesting and security distro in existence. It may be a bit rough around the edges sometimes, but the developers work hard to fix any issues that users discover.

There are 3 platforms where Kali Linux has an edge: Kali Nethunter for Android phones, Kali for ARM devices (such as the Raspberry Pi, etc.), and Kali for older x86-based PCs.

Hmm we have only 1 member who handles ARM build but he is very busy right now so well… still pending.
