My concern is basically that I suspect there's a user community
out there that doesn't necessarily read the list or go to KVM Forum.
I actually have no idea which of the various elderly ARM boards are
really used and which we could just delete. If back in July we'd
marked the relevant boards as "this may disappear in the next version"
we might have got some feedback about if anybody was actually using
tosa, spitz, etc.
