ok, so: follow-up:
is anyone interested to know what the costs would be, of an
engineering board conforming to the above strategy, using a low-end
Cortex A9 CPU such as the AML-8726-M? (for reference, the 8726 is
known to be between $13 to $15 depending on volume)
does anyone have any questions, comments or suggestions regarding the
strategy to place cooperation and collaboration back at the heart of
linux kernel development?

does anyone want to take responsibility for making sure that there is
