The main concern I would have is that these boards are "unproven".
Personally I'd want to see a new board successfully building packages
with a tolerable ammount (ideally zero) of crashes for at least a
month or so before comitting to build out an entire cluster of them.
That's true, but judging by the Odroid-X which I already have and has

bet in favour of the odroid-XU as well. But yes, I wouldn't object
against testing first of course. My biggest concern is in actually

We'd certainly like the opportunity to contribute.
