Hello coreboot fellows,
we've recently seen the deprecation of Intel/Broadwell-DE support because it turned out to be too proprietary to be maintained in the long run. With that in mind, shouldn't additions to coreboot that have high chances to suffer the same fate be discussed in advance? It seems a huge burden for the community to add proprietary support for a platform, and all related effort is wasted if support can't be maintained.
There are currently two new platforms in development that seem to have trouble with public binaries (which would be necessary to make the code useful to the coreboot community). Namely, AMD/Picasso and Intel/Skylake-SP. Support for the former is already partially rotting on our master branch. Shouldn't we discuss their fate before more resources are wasted?
