[PyQt] Android & the pyqtdeploy tool: the provided demo relies on undocumented libraries/headers?

Hello friends,

PyQt5 is an exciting technology to get to work on Android. I was able to 
get python3 + pyqt5 to work via pydroid IDE, but now I need an APK 
built. PyQt5 comes with a tool designed to build APK's, called 
pyqtdeploy, but it is not clear if it is functional yet. The provided 
demo is missing the steps to get from demo to APK.

I am new to pyqtdeploy. Is this the best way to get help? I noticed the 
documentation & source archive does include a demo, but does not include 
how to get the steps to get the demo working. However I have taken a 
stab at it, and I found issues compiling both OpenSSL & SIP. There are 
missing libraries & headers.  I have detailed my steps here in a public 
forum so that others who have the same issue can hopefully share what 
they find:


Is there a place I can report this as a bug as well? Is someone in this 
list familiar with how to run the pyqtdeploy demo on android?
