I know we talked about this at the openSUSE conference, and I'm glad
that you are starting to kick this off, it's great.

But, what specific machine are you targeting this to run on to start
with? We need some kind of specific platform to aim for besides a
semi-vague processor level, in order to get a valid kernel and
tool-chain up and running. The kernel specifically is going to be a bit
difficult as each individual platform needs tweaks in order to have it
work properly due to the lack of discoverable busses (device-tree work

In other words, what box do I need to go buy in order to help make this
possible? :)
