Just no thought to designing for development at all.

OAuth2 key/scope bugs are analogous to embedded pinmuxing bugs where you look everywhere else first before coming back to the obvious.

@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. linuxgizmos.com/first-i-mx8-qu

Filling my development system with loads of node.js stuff for a fun FOSS project. I'm not sure if I should be happy or sad right now but I know it's Friday.
