ok. > Since we select default payloads in our Kconfig rules (seabios for > x86), I guess we should start doing the same for other architectures. > I don't think that belongs in your test script - things might change > in the future, and that shouldn't require additional effort on your > part. agreed :) > We'll work on that, and will tell you once there's a plan and/or > implementation. cool, thanks. That said, as the current tests have reached 100%, I'm thinking about removing the "--payloads none" switch again now already, so that then some images have payloads and some not. > > And then I'm wondering, "what next"?

Hm. I guess I will leave it here for the moment, hoping that someone will pick up the task of verifying actually released and downloadable images... > If you want to support coreboot distributions (that ship binaries), > libreboot is currently your best bet. added as question to my TODO :) > > Last, and probably least: currently the headline of the page says "fast, > > flexible and reproducible Open Source firmware_?_" which I felt was > > appropriate when only a few images with payload were reproducible. > Oh, I loved it, still do!
