One if my work colleagues has a ci20 around which I *think* he has been using
mostly with Buildroot as the base system. I'll get to him and see whether it
may be possible for one of us to adopt this one.

We have at the office a couple of Odroid C2 which I think may not be in use, 
but I do not have physical access to them (I work remotely), but I might be
able to do something about them. I'll ask around as well.

I have a Pandaboard in storage, which I will get back by June. After that I
could probably take over this defconfig.

That being said, I do not have much interest in toying with it, so if somebody
else would commit to maintaining Buildroot on the Pandaboard I would happily
consider donating it to someone in the Finland or the EU — send me an e-mail
off-list if you are interested.

I tend use the Raspberry Pi 2/3 defconfigs whenever I bump the WebKitGTK+
package (and recently libepoxy), and they are very popular boards. It would
be a pity to lose those. I can help out with them, but I bet there are people
with better knowledge about the hardware details who should be listes as
maintainers ;-)

The Sheevaplug configuration should also work for the GuruPlug, right? I also
have a GuruPlug in storage which I would be happy to donate if somebody is
interested.
