I would agree with this. Could I make a small suggestion? How about for
boards that are going to be removed, someone at least tries to build a
kernel for it, if it works then tag CVS as such for that board. If not,
blow it away. This allows someone who possibly has an interest later on
to at least be able to pull the last known working snapshot for their
board. Just a thought.
