Subject:  Novena open laptop
X-Mailer: Evolution 3.4.4-1 

Bunnie Huang and others are working on a ARM-based laptop 'Novena' with
open hardware and mostly open firmware:
Would anyone care to get involved in this and work out what's needed to
support this in Debian?

The SoC is a Freescale i.MX6Q, which should be able to run the armhf
port.  We currently have an mx5 kernel flavour for Freescale's previous
generation, but it looks like it would be possible to support both with
a single configuration (plus DT) now.

Always try to do things in chronological order;
it's less confusing that way.
