Project Details of this LineageOS 15 Oreo ROM for Galaxy A5:
You can find the project here: https://github.com/DeadSquirrel01/lineage-15_a5_releases
Each release contains a zip with latest lineageos changes of the day when the zip is built and an odin-flashable twrp image which contains latest twrp changes, too
As you can read in project’s readme, jenkins will automatically build a release the 10th day of every month
The zip can be easily ported by creating an “old-style” zip instead of the lineage-built zip with .dat files.
