I am a sophomore student willing to apply to coreboot as part of Google Summer of Code 2019.

I have done lot of programming in C and I have a course this semester, where I will be doing assignments in Assembly language.

I wanted to work on "Fully support building coreboot with the Clang compiler", however I had a query on the hardware requirements listed on https://doc.coreboot.org/contributing/project_ideas.html:

"hardware requirements: If you have your own hardware that is already supported by coreboot that can be a good test target, but you will debug other people’s hardware, too."

Hmm, I have a Ubuntu laptop, and I can buy a Raspberry Pi, if you want ARM architecture as well, but I didn't get the "you will debug other people’s hardware, too" part. Could you please explain?
