hi zap, minor correction: the EOMA68 *standard* will *not* require (or
undergo) revision in order to support any given processor.

 ah that's good.

 if there's a better option that goes over 2GB RAM, i'd like to use it instead.

 again, to make absolutely clear: EOMA68 does not and *will* not
undergo *any* revision to support any specific given processor.

 you *may* be referring to the funding and production of a card that
is *COMPLIANT* with the EOMA68 specification, that happens to be
manufactured in a sequence that may be numbered "2nd", where the
EOMA68-A20 could conceivably be numbered "1st".

 yeah appreciated.

 i happened to encounter the RK3308 (i think it was that one) which is
also a Cortex A53, and the RK3326 which can address up to 4GB:

the only down-side of the RK3326: only one USB port, it will require
an on-board USB Hub IC to support 2x USB2 for full EOMA68 compliance.
