I've just added a "Recently tested mainboards:" section to the end of https://piratenpad.de/p/coreboot4.10-release-checklist . I think its' existence could encourage the people to submit a board status report for their board, to increase its' visibility and attract more potential users/developers who'll read these release notes at some opensource-dedicated websites and may become interested at coreboot project. This section includes 6 laptops and 2 desktops for which the board status reports have been submitted during May and the beginning of June. Luckily 4.10 release is not there yet, so the people still have some time to submit a fresh board status for their board and then it could be included to this list.
Also, regarding the significant changes: " ### Tianocore UEFI integrated as payload " . I hope it doesn't mean that Tianocore will become the default payload, since there are ideological/technical reasons against this ( I think there's a significant overlap between the groups of people who love / interested in coreboot and hate UEFI )
Recently tested mainboards: --------------------------- * Lenovo Ideapad G505S * Lenovo Thinkpad T400 * Lenovo Thinkpad T430 * Lenovo Thinkpad T430s baseboard * Lenovo Thinkpad X131e Chromebook * Lenovo Thinkpad X230 * Gigabyte GA-B75M-D3H * Asrock E350M1

with this mail I'm officially starting the 4.10 release process. As per the first step of our checklist (Documentation/releases/checklist.md), I hereby announce the intent to release coreboot 4.10 in about 2 weeks. I'm aiming for May 28th to avoid releasing into the weekend or on Memorial Day in the US, but I'll likely lock down the commit we'll designate 4.10 during those days to give some room for testing.
I created a copy of the checklist on https://piratenpad.de/p/coreboot4.10-release-checklist, also including the current state of the 4.10 release notes.
Please test the boards you have around and provide fixes, please be careful with intrusive changes (and maybe postpone them until after the release) and please update the release notes (Documentation/releases/coreboot-4.10-relnotes.md or near the bottom of the etherpad doc, I'll carry them over into our git repo then).
As promised with the 4.9 release there won't be deprecations after 4.10. However we need to finalize our set of deprecations we want to announce with 4.10 that will happen after the 4.11 release (those also belong in the release notes).
