apologies konstantinos, this crossed over with someone else's
excellent question, to which you should be receiving the response by
now. the summary is this: i do not believe it is off-topic to have
specific hardware and specific software totally excluded from testing
at the sprint, on the basis that the only available toolchain,
libraries and firmware is proprietary, requires an NDA and is only
given out to the ARM silicon licensees, let alone to end-users.
that it is entirely ARM's fault that this situation is the case is
particularly embarrassing - to ARM, who are actually sponsoring the
sprint, but that fact _is_, strictly speaking, off-topic.
