Per your specific question, I am working through the laundry list of approvals to publish Coffee Lake binaries right now. Its "in the works." I'll post an announcement once it is up.

I understand that as platform ages, it gets less development, I was mostly asking because I saw that coffeelake FSP headers are in coreboot but there are no FSP images for coffeelake on github yet, which is basically the same/similar issue as what we complained about with regards to Kabylake, and your answer was only about Kabylake, so I was hoping other platforms are "in the works" for being kept up to date between public and "internal" releases.

I would like to caution that as a platform ages, our internal development shifts to newer ones. Accordingly, I would expect the frequency of FSP releases to lengthen as a platform ages.

There was some prior discussion here regarding the lack of public updates for Kaby Lake FSP binaries and headers and questions regarding specialized FSP binaries being built for specific boards. I would like to clear up some of these questions and concerns. We just pushed all of the recently released versions of Kaby Lake FSP (3.1.0 through 3.6.0) to https://github.com/IntelFsp/FSP/tree/Kabylake. While there might appear to be forks of Kaby Lake FSP, they are actually just snapshots at different points in time. For example, there is one commit labelled as "Gold release for Kaby Lake FSP" that appears to be special fork for IoT devices... this commit is actually just Kaby Lake FSP Release 2.6.0 without any IoT specific modifications. Apologies for the confusing commit messages and for the temporary lapse in updates.
