Will we get an unofficial LineageOS for Lenovo TAB M10?

Lenovo TAB M10 is a cheap 10" tablet. It seems that currently there are no custom ROMs for it. Given the fact that Lenovo will probably never provide software update for it, without custom ROM, it will become a paperweight fast.

So, I wonder how likely if someone creates an unofficial LineageOS build for it in about a year or so. Are Lenovo's tablets generally hard to create a custom ROM for?

Let's say that it would be nice to have a custom rom, but first a recovery would help.
I am trying to develop something, but unfortunately I have no experience building the vendor/device folders required, fundamental to perform this activity.

Moreover, considering that the device is still pretty new, I don't know.

Tbh, I was thinking about installing debian or archlinux on it: mine has no 3g, and a pure Linux would likely extend the device supported

The partial good news is that Lenovo has actually provided an Android 10 update, and TWRP is available for the M10. As far as I can tell there are still no custom roms though; I'd love to put LineageOS on it.

M10 FHD Plus user here... I've unlocked the bootloader, installed twrp and magisk, but where can I find custom roms?

I flashed Ubuntu Touch on my M10 FHD Plus a few days ago. The process was alright, though I had some trouble using SP flash utility. Didn't need to use TWRP. Charging is abysmally slow, so there's definitely room for improvement of the ROM's compatibility with the device.

Here are the resources I used:

SP flash V5 works better than v6, at least on my linux machine.
