Sponsoring Ubuntu Touch community builds

Registered by Ricardo Salveti on 2013-03-22

Currently we're building images just for the Nexus based devices, as we can distribute them, and also as we support them as reference builds/devices.

As we get more and more community ports, it came the idea of being able to sponsor the builds by providing an infrastructure to generate daily builds for those devices (the ones that allow us to distribute the image with binary blobs).

Identify if we're able to provide such infrastructure, and how that can be done at the engineering level.
