This is focussed on users (non-developers).
Most coreboot users only have perhaps a few machines that they are
Maybe even just one.
Yet they are downloading the entire coreboot source tree and selecting
which board they want, configuring it, etc.
--> a small set of source files (such as from src/mainboard/vendor/board)
--> a script (perhaps a simple git checkout) which fetches the needed
parts of the source from the main branch, for building that board
--> default/"sane" configurations pre-defined for that board.
--> less headache for developers (user already has most of what they
need, less likely to request support)
--> less to download (less waiting required, especially for people
with slow connections)
Essentially, I have in mind a more "modular" coreboot.
