Toward a unified representation for the layout of coreboot flash images

N.B. The changes described herein are being made as part of the Chromium OS project; as such, they will initially be committed to the project's own fork of the main coreboot repository, which is available at [1]. Unless otherwise noted, the paths and processes described throughout this page are as they exist(ed) in a checkout of the master branch of the Chromium OS sources as they appeared at the beginning of 2015. One of the guiding design principles is to keep the tools general enough that they will be helpful to others, and the resulting work will be upstreamed to the main repository once it has been regression-tested in the context of Chromium OS hardware.

How it's currently done (how the Chromium OS project presently constructs firmware images)

What's so bad about that (the pitfalls of this build model that we hope to solve)

Why you should care (how this pertains to all coreboot users)

How do we fix it (the solution being pursued)
