vx800 code is supported in coreboot since earlier this year. vx700 I
don't know - but I believe it has many similarities with cx700 which
is supported.

Noone is working on the existing code as far as I know. I'm working a
little bit on explicit VX855 support, but there is a lot of
redundancy with VX800. Are you using VX855?

Talk to us. The mailing list is a good start, you're also very
welcome to join the IRC channel #coreboot on irc.freenode.net.

No, that page is unfortunately not a great progress tracker.
