Package: debian-installer
Severity: normal


There are 42 DTBs shipped with the installer for Allwinner alone:

But for the bootloader aka firmware aka u-boot:
it is an extremely weird and arbitrary list of 12 random boards. For instance
supporting "Orange Pi Zero Plus2" of all things specifically, not even just
"Zero Plus"; and not, say, Orange Pi Prime or Orange Pi Win (and so on).

So despite having all the other DTBs, the system is not installable on those
boards. Unless the user is sent to find and compile their own u-boot, but if
so, what is the purpose of randomly providing it for 12 random niche boards to
begin with, might as well make everyone do that.

Instead, I suggest a better solution: maybe not even daily, but at least once
per month, could you build a bootloader part for ALL the supported boards, and
not just a handful of them. Thanks!

With respect,
