What is expected frequency of sending board status updates? We have
all those board and even some awaiting port to coreboot.
We are committed to keep those platforms on the master but I'm not
sure if I understand rules based on which platforms are planned for
We maintain coreboot tree with customer specific customizations that
will probably never lend in mainline, because of that we are rather
interested to make coreboot work with PC Engines platforms on tagged
releases and not exactly on any random commit in between. Any commit
approach would require firmware validation automation which we will
eventually have. So if release cycles take a lot of time then IMO
delayed board status update should be allowed.
Second thing that IMO is problematic in board status is assumption
that system have to boot with vanilla coreboot. This is problematic
when you have to use customized version of SeaBIOS or any other
payload used for booting system.
Because of long weekend we will send board status updates for boards
under 3mdeb maintainership before 11 May. Please let me know if feel
this is too late.
