"Building a Jamstack site": A job for CDNs?

When Jamstack sites are pushed to an hosting service, they are immediately been “built”. The resulting static files are passed on to the CDN. I get it, but the process can be blurry.

Where does the “build” happen? Version control (BitBucket pipeline, GitHub actions…), or on the Hosting Service (when we don’t use Pipeline/Actions)? Do CDNs participate in the build process or just wait for the static files and route incoming requests to them?

With the XDN, the build is always done by the CLI, either locally or in a CI platform such as GitHub actions.

Are going to have a CI/CD platform on the XDN sometimes in the future?

We may, but no timetable on that yet.
