As we have discussed in January (2023) on this list I have a working
boot-image fullfilling the minimal requierements (U-Boot, Linux Kernel,
Debian root image on UART console) somewhere on my hard drives.
Andreas Grapentin and I have broken hardware. I don't know if Andreas
made any progress at repairing his hardware. 

So my question is: "Can anyone with working hardware test and varify my
boot-image before we send it to Crowdsupply?"
This is the crucial step right now. We can ice the cake later once 100
cards get released into the world.

Richard, am I correct that you have a working computer card and a
microdesktop in you possession. Are you willing to set it all up and
test my boot-image?
