We will tell you about the details of our project if you are friendly
and if you read the documentation.

We do not benefit from explaining things to you.
You have shown an unwillingness to learn independently, so the project
does not benefit from explaining things to you either.
BUT... if you pay some of us _enough_ money, they will treat you as a
customer and explain things to you even if you are unwilling to do any
work yourself.

Even if you promised to help us with developing coreboot, we would not
benefit until the amount of development done by you saves other
developers more time than they lose explaining things to you. We do not
know you, and we have no way to make sure if you really intend to help
or if you're just trolling. Your behaviour so far is pretty close to

Apparently you found the wiki, but you're unwilling or unable to read
and understand the main contents, and focused on the mailing list
instructions instead.

And why don't you do that?

You have three choices:
1. Be friendly. Read the source/documentation. We'll explain the rest.
2. Pay someone to explain this in private.
3. Leave.
