It [coreboot] would be dead: while there are still a few folks carefully maintaining i945 and GM45 in this reality, I'm not sure they would have done so in that other reality where there was no help maintaining the payloads (and so coreboot-compatible seabios, tianocore, grub, filo, ... would all be on their plate as well)
That seems an odd assessment. Did you confuse blobs that are "required" in coreboot with blobs that sit in the same storage medium (e.g. ME firmware)? It also seems that you underestimate the individuals in the community.
I don't understand your statement that Patrick is underestimating the individuals in the community. Are you saying that people would have worked around the blobs? If so, then why haven't we seen that code. We'd all love it.
Could you explain?
