We are always on the new lookout for supporting new boards. This can,
however, only happen if Debian supports the board first. This means
having upstream/Debian kernel support, upstream/Debian u-boot support,
and an entry in the flash-kernel package. If this happens and if we have
a FreedomBox user willing to test for a board then adding support in
FreedomBox itself is trivial.

It is exciting to see these hardware boards making strides every year in
cost, capabilities, performance and freedom. These will directly
translate to FreedomBox hosting more apps and more users with better
