we don't have hardware. During OSFC 2019 Stefan left one
board, but it was too late (and probably too expensive) for us to
organize any shipment to Poland. We looking to have 2 mainboards one
for development and one in our automated regression testing
environment. Of course we will start even with just one.
I would be pleased if Vikings could help out by sending two KGPE-D16
systems for this purpose. You can contact me at this address for
Thank you for your contribution to the community, Thomas.
Perhaps someone in CC will also be able to help out
one way or the
Of course there are many things aside that are needed besides the
boards. I would be happy to contribute hardware in addition to Thomas's
contributions (and any other people's contributions too).

I would very much like to help (no, I would actually _love_ to help) in
founding this project. I am very excited about any possibility of
taking on maintainership or foundership duties.

Among the coreboot community I am relatively inexperienced but I have a
good working knowledge of Libreboot. If experienced D16 coreboot
developers who are involved in this could help me occasionally, I would
be immensely grateful.
I am good at research at self-directed learning. In _most_ projects
that I start to work on, after I have the information I need to start I
can carry on without too much extra hand-holding.

I agree that this is a particularly important thing to keep well
supported and well maintained. (I feel the same way about several
other, specific, computing platforms too. I will express this in detail
Aside from positive feedback, /using/ the platform is important.
Education, the coreboot/D16 development toolchain, writing and sharing
documentation, helping newcomers, plus /many other things/, are just as
important as having a functional D16.
