"Ever since the demise of Google+, many developers have expressed a desire to have a service that would provide a way to create and manage content in a format that would be more rich and easier to access than email messages sent to LKML. Today, we would like to introduce people.kernel.org, which is an ActivityPub-enabled federated platform powered by WriteFreely and hosted by very nice and accommodating folks at write.as."
“what’s the difference between a vendor that only promotes the ideas that are in its own interest and a foundation that does the same thing. Or worse, a foundation that will only represent projects that it’s paid to represent.”

Here's something frustrating in hardware design: vendor designs custom board such that there's no recovery mechanism without doing hardware rework. In this case, instead of providing a dip switch or jumpers, they force the developer to desolder/solder an 0402 resistor switch from QSPI<->UART bootloader mode. Just no thought to designing for development at all.

@trini @bradfa As part of the ongoing discussion of the need for higher end arm64 desktop solutions... I'd be far more willing to be on something from fsl/nxp with proper docs and community support than anything in a similar core configuration from amlogic, rockchip, etc. http://linuxgizmos.com/first-i-mx8-quadmax-sbc-breaks-cover/
