I have been working on the Juno (validator/node) on akash deployment based on a fork of the cosmos-omnibus repo. The repo dockerfile currently does not support starport built cosmos chains. I have made modifications to the dockerfile configuration to add support for the same. I have been talking with Tom about pushing the new code to the repo.
I intend to write a deployment guide for juno as well as stargaze, which are both in testnet. I will keep the omnibus repo configurations and docker builds updated, up to mainnets.
I am up to the point where i need to test akash deployments and am seeking some developer funds to assist. I have created an akash address for development work.
Impact: This will make it easy for people to deploy nodes or validators that rely on starport. The guides will assist newcomers in deploying to akash.
Timeline: Less than 1 month
Team: As this is not a large undertaking, it will be undertaken by myself along with the custodians of the csomos-omnibus repo
Reporting: Finalised deployment guides, updates to this forum post.
