Subject: OT: Crowdfunding to port OpenBMC to Asus KGPE-D16

[Please CC me, as I am not subscribed.]

Dear OpenBMC people,


If you haven’t heard yet, there is a crowdfunding campaign going on to
fund a port of OpenBMC to the Asus KGPE-D16 [1].

The free firmware coreboot [2] runs on that board, and no BLOBs have to
be used with it. Having OpenBMC run on that board, would be the last
step, to have a fully free, owner-controlled server mainboard. I am
citing a message from Timothy to the coreboot mailing list below from
February 6th, 2017 [3].

> As of today, we have $10,250 pledged out of $20,000 required to start

As of today there are still $6,000 USD missing. As the coreboot
community does not seem big enough to fund such a project, I am kindly
asking you for support. If you can’t or don’t want to spend money, it’d
be great if you could spread the word (Twitter message [4]).


Thanks,

Paul
