So, why are we still going back and forth about this? If people want to work on coreboot they can do so (I'm sure they have a list). If people want to fork coreboot or redo it from scrach they can do so and start their own list. When it is shiny and perfect and has a following of hundreds of linux users we can always discuss whether we recommend using it in the handbook on -dev then. Otherwise it seems about as on-topic as debating whether grub or systemd or openrc should have feature A/B/C - we're a DISTRO - we integrate and ship what upstream gives us... Rich
