You pointed me in the right direction, the LineageOS wiki has solid instructions. I've been figuring out how to use a virtual machine in Google Cloud the past few days, as my laptop is not sufficient anymore. It worked out very well, I produced my first build yesterday, on my first try. Now I'm figuring out from the wiki how to sign it with my own keys and after that how to migrate a phone from the last official build to my own build without losing any data. After that I'll figure out how to upload it to Android Filehost or Google Drive and share it on this forum If I don't suddenly lose interest this might be pretty soon, if I do lose interest it might be weeks before I come back to this haha We'll see.The thread title would be in opposition to your build, so you would definitely need to start a new thread. Also, most important details and links to new builds are posted in the OP, which you would not be able to edit unless its your own thread. And its just respectful to the orig dev.
I dont use LOS on this device or plan to. I am tempted to stick with A11. I am still running the stock A11, I too have built multiple ROMs for my previous devices (oreo being the last), but am hesitant at building for this device in case there are any "gotcha's" after spending hours building the env/source etc. I would be interested in following how you go . I havent seen too many details published for building ROMs for this device. Actually, I just realised I have not checked LOS web site, previously they had pretty thorough steps details on building their ROMs for official devices.
