Adjust Parabola to work with _any_ ARM board and adapt/accept _any_ 
(I guess by "adjusting the apps" Enrique is also referring to adding 
custom packages
to something like [pcr])

This needs more clarification:

For most boards we would probably be able to boot Linux-libre and run a 
Parabola GNU/Linux system, but I suspect there may be some others that 
custom (and even nonfree) kernels to even work at all!

But there's something else we all know for sure we won't be able to 
support: bootloaders.
Platforms like Samsung Exynos _need_ nonfree and signed bootloaders to 
work at all. Users
are alone making sure they can boot Parabola from a proprietary 
bootloader. I mention this
because I also received Enrique's previous mail off-list days ago, and 
if I recall correctly he
is concerned with keeping things 100% free for his project. We can't 
magically free all the
software in the odroids.
