Recently we announced that we are going to drop support for bulk of boards to secure better quality for those that will remain. But which will remain? Those who will have at least one dedicated maintainer - anyone can become one. 


Check new "Armbian standard" support policy:

Quote

Benefits provided for a Supported SBC

  • Armbian will publish and distribute "stable" CLI images through its mirror network
  • Armbian will publish and distribute "periodic / nightly" CLI and Desktop images
  • Armbian will work with SBC maintainer to assure compatiblity within the Armbian Build System
  • Armbian will provide the team's unique expertise to assist maintainer with general challenges
  • Best-effort compensation will be provided to maintainer from the "Armbian Community Fund"

Criteria for Supported

For an SBC to be considered supported:

  • A named individual as "maintainer" along with GitHub ID must be clearly identifed in the Board Configuration File
  • A named individual must commit to providing "Best Effort" support for their SBC on the Armbian forums
  • Maintainer must participate in the Release Process
  • Maintainer must sign-off that device has been tested, is stable, and ready for release during release process.
  • Maintainer must have physical access to the SBC they're supporting

Additional Caveats:

  • Supported is not applied to a "family" or group of related SBCs. It is per SBC.
  • A maintainer can support multiple devices, but must satisfy all requirements above, per SBC.
  • Any individual can be a maintainer for a standard support SBC
  • Missed released will result in immediate forfeit of "Armbian Supported" status and demotion to CSC status unless Armbian team grants exemption.

 

 

Armbian team took over what was possible while the remaining boards, which won't get a maintainer by December 1st, will loose support status and will be removed from the download pages.

Armbian is a community driven open source project. Do you like to contribute your code?

Hi, would it be possible to install Armbian on a zte zxv10 b866v2 device?
