Just a suggestion, two developers with the actual board in hand for testing and qa purposes. The reason for two I simply sometimes a single developer can't keep up for personaland maybe there should be a "working group".
The should be a working but not officially supported cat catagory, and a works but not officially supported.l

In today's ARM meeting in #fedora-meeting-1 we started the discussion on
the procedure for supporting new ARM devices in Fedora 20. Previously
this was done in an ad-hoc manner by the ARM team. While we will
continue to enable as diverse a set of devices as possible, this is
specifically about what devices are considered supported in a GA
release. As an example, in Fedora 19 we supported the Trimslice, but
not the AC100, even though they are both Tegra 2 devices and in theory
may both work. Many unsupported devices may work, but only a select few
can be release blockers.
Starting in Fedora 20 / kernel 3.11, we think the following devices may
be newly supportable:
Calxeda Midway with LPAE
AC100 (Tegra 2)
BeagleBone Black & White
More than anything, this is about minimum requirements for QE. Support
implies testing, release blocking, etc, so growing the matrix needs to
approached cautiously. There is also a question of timing- what is the
cutoff for adding a new release blocking device? Alpha? Beta? Is it a
feature request? Feedback appreciated.
