None google operating system for android

Does RW support the non-google android operating system LineageOS.
If no why not ?
Pro and Cons ?

the current answer is no, as Republic current WiFI to cell setup requires known hooks to be in the base OS this is there and google is showing no sign to remove them OEM some time make changes and these get modified and then repubile system could stop working that why all phones usable on Republic are While listed in the compatible phones list and the Non-Google version of android may not have or may have these software hooks and the testing needed to approve this software far exceeds republic limited resources

most versions of non-google android don’t live up to expectations the lack of the vetted Google play store mean what ever app store you end up using can be a gateway for security issues. other than the Amazon Fire on tablets most have not been successful (the Amazon Fire phone was a dud)
