Creating a How-To collection for compilation

I would like to start a How-To collection on compiling the desktop client.
For this I created a github repository where we could collect guides for each platform and distribution. The idea is that we could have detailed guides on how to compile the client. This would help out until there are official packages and maybe help the development of those.

The repository can be found here and I’m glad about anyone who sends as something along.

Please provide credits if you copy your instructions from somewhere I will create an example with Ubuntu 16.04 based on this blog post:
