I think that having OEM BIOS logs from supported boards does make a lot of sense, but when I talked to Stefan about it before, he didn't want to add unsupported boards. His thinking was that we didn't want to be the world's largest lspci database
Right, I didn't think about this issue.
Given the amount of effort needed to port coreboot to new chipsets, how big would such database be, if we limit it to chipsets we support. For instance northbridges and southbridges (if it applies).
We could also want to only whitelist specific chipset combinations beforehand.
Example1: We might want some information on Lenovo Thinkpad laptops with supported northbridge and southbridge.
Example2: Someone is looking for hardware with specific requirements to do a port.
In both examples, the submission script will whitelist that combination.
