The goal of this effort is to minimize the differences between the
Chromium chromeos-2013.04 branch and the coreboot master branch. As part
of this any outstanding patches or differences between the branches will

Original authors are automatically added as reviewers if they have coreboot.org gerrit accounts. I try to get approval from the original authors, but they are not always available for comment. If they are not available and the patch is non-trivial, we look for someone else familiar with the area or the original author of the section for review. We would like to avoid too many rubber stamp reviews.

This hasn't been a problem yet since we are only focusing on the
chromeos-2013.04 branch at this time. If you know of a good solution for
this I would appreciate any information.

Not at this time but we're coordinating with Google on this.
