[OpenWrt-Devel] [RFC] stop accepting 4/32M board patches

Hey all,

I would like to start to reject patches for adding boards with only 32 
MByte of RAM and 4 MByte of flash [0]. These boards barely work with 
todays OpenWrt default builds and require quite some modifications to be 
useful at all [1].

IMHO it doesn't make much sense to waste resources (reviewer time, build 
resources) for boards which will most likely never see an official build 
and/or are more or less unusable with the official build.

I prefer to have a joint statement which I can link to, to prevent 
endless discussions or accusations of acting purely arbitrary.

I'm not sure whether the topic qualifies for a formal voting, hence the RFC.
