The picasso platforms are being worked on in a private repo because it's not bootable at coreboot.org. It's not bootable because the patches that would make it bootable were delayed and rejected.
I'm sorry that you had trouble with your patches. I didn't know about it.
What's the incentive to work on anything at coreboot.org? Why should any company work at coreboot.org when we just get complaints and grief?
Idealistic goals aside, one can get their code maintained for free! I think there is also great value in working together. One gets a code review for free. Which is, IMHO, one third of the development costs.
I can't say what was going wrong with Picasso. I turned my back on it after the very first commit scared me away, so I really missed the last half year. Maybe the grief came because complaints were ignored? maybe not? Not a single mail passed the mailing list, how are people supposed to know?
Personally, I'm tired of dealing with it. It's become too toxic, so I'm retiring from the project.
Sad to hear that. Especially because I seem to have triggered it. Believe me, when I tried to discuss the binary situation, I had no idea about the feelings that already piled up on Gerrit (or in private conversations, what do I know).
