Hi Patrick, hi list,

Thanks for the hint. I have no experience with gerrit, so this wasn't 
self-explanatory to me.

With the http credentials, I was able to submit my results. At least I 
think so, because I had to enter the credentials and didn't see any 
error message when I tried it yesterday. But 
https://coreboot.org/status/board-status.html still shows a date from 
january for the alix2d platform.

Repeating the process today because I thought I did something wrong 
results in "Result is a duplicate, aborting", which makes me think 
yesterday's commit was successful:

Result is a duplicate, aborting

One more thing: My board is an Alix 2C, which is pretty similar to the 
Alix 2D. It is reported as "alix2d", so the table at 
https://coreboot.org/status/board-status.html will always show "unknown" 
as status for the alix2c, which might be confusing.

Thanks and best regards,
