Glory? Lmao.. I always refer to the suicide team in my changelogs as our ROMs like aoscp and LOS is done by teamwork not by a single person. Exactly that was the reason why I said you should explain why you build an own version of LOS 16(!) so ppl understand the differences and there are some. That's all.

First of all,
i'm not the type of guy who will maintain something old.
When N was released that was when i started developing for first time and i made custom roms here have same camera quality with stock, because i wanted it for myself. I wanted to take good photos, not some bad pixels with noise.
When O was released i abandoned my sleep and i spent 3 weeks x24 hours to make this uncompatible kernel work perfectly to bring up O. And i did. I imported the code from bullhead line by line so that i won't break anything.
When P was released i did it in 1 day (i had more experience + all this hard work in O was not for nothing). I didn't release it because i let it go to bring up AOSCP for p20 pro. Few months later I came back and we made this thing stable together.
Now i did Q in just few hours. I didn't release it because i want to do a "clean" work. I forced it to build by hacking the "build" repo. So i can't push those commits, so i wait a bit.
But what history showed ? Upon every new Android release i never maintained the old one and i never built all variants. I do not have a server and i need my PC to also entertain myself, i can't have it building for hours.
So , even if i did one Lineage 16 build what does it really matter ? And even if i bring up Q in a few days what does it really matter ? It's your server who will be building and will be doing the most work.
One Lineage 16 build means nothing. I will never build Pie again just like i never built Oreo again.
3. kernel. Instead of fixing some useless functions , i chose to remove them, in order to have less jobs for CPU to do.
4. Policies. I have added more policies when on the other hand you added less policies and have some functions blocked.
Nothing else. 3 and 4 are just details.
And it's just personal. I simply shared one build, the one im using at my phone.
XDA is about sharing. It's not our job. I'm simply sharing the rom i flash to my device.
In my point of view , i do not have to answer to questions like whats different. They do not even pay me. I'm not selling anything. I do this for fun.
I'm not doing Pie. The link is there until i release Q and it will stay there for historical reason.
To remind me that this was the last Pie and what i see in that rom is the fruit of a hard work of one whole year.
CU in Q.
