A quick update.
As of today, we have $10,250 pledged out of $20,000 required to start work on the OpenBMC support for KGPE-D16 systems using coreboot. Raptor is, as before, contributing an additional $25,000+ toward development should the $20,000 community goal be reached.
If you would like to help get this port started, please contact Martin Roth (email@example.com) with information on what you would like to pledge. This offer is time limited; we are looking to end the offer in the next month or so, so if this is something you would like to see please step up and contribute something to this goal!
As a general reminder, the KGPE-D16 is the last, most powerful owner-controllable X86 workstation / server class machine available. It is still in production along with its Opteron CPUs, so it occupies a unique position in coreboot's tree. Providing a libre BMC for this system could help adoption of coreboot in server environments, strengthening its position some in the market.
