TL;DR: It would be great if there were a pre-built wheel of SymEngine for Linux + ARM on PyPI.

I'm helping a friend install some software that depends on SymEngine on an Amazon EC2 instance; the machine has an ARM processor. There don't appear to be pre-built wheels of SymEngine for Linux on ARM. We're installing from source for now but it might save others a bit of time in future if there were a pre-built wheel on PyPI.  I realize the project is maintained by volunteers and bandwidth might be limited for tasks like this. But given that AWS appears to be running ARM servers (!) and the latest Apple M1 processor using ARM as well, I think there are likely to be a lot more users on this architecture than there have been in the past.

Regards,
Daniel

Hi Daniel,
Thanks for the email!

Do you know how to automatically build it? Let's do that. Go ahead and create an issue for this here:

and let's work on it.
