The number of boards has been raising in last months and, as result,
the maintainance effort. It is quite difficult to keep all boards in
good shape without sharing the maintenance load among several people.

A maintainer field is now in machine configuration file of
meta-fsl-arm and meta-fsl-arm-extra.

An example of the script's output can be seen at:


So now, every new board must have someone assigned as maintainer. This
ensures we have a person responsable for every new board. Current
orphan boards are not going to be removed unless it causes maintenance
problem and the fix is not straighforward.

Please review the script and also use this opportunity to adopt your
preferred board.
