Should we not also provide some hints how a user (which eventually
limited experience in git) can actually find such information?

I would appreciate if we could provide examples at least for the
trivial case where is is looking for some specific board(s) well
known to him; maybe also for searching for things like removal of a
specific CPU (say, PPC405GP) or CPU falimy.

And instead of removing the  scripts/fill_scrapyard.py  script,
should we not rather modify it to generate a list of (all) removed
boards - that would be really helpful, I think ?

Best regards,

Wolfgang Denk

Nearly everyone is in favor of going  to  heaven  but  too  many  are
hoping  they'll  live  long  enough  to see an easing of the entrance
requirements. Never appeal to a man's "better nature." he  might  not
have one.
