it should be available on coreboot.org/download or front page clearly visible !
it will clearly not help getting more people into
coreboot development but if you can add a chip that is used in 1000 desktops you
will certainly draw more attention than doing the same effort and reaching 10.
If it works than you can find that chip.
Even when you will never use the data collected by the script, so what ? it will waste only
a few more bytes on the coreboot.org server.
