Hi everyone,

adding Robert to CC as he is listed as the current maintainer of
ARM/EZX SMARTPHONES in the MAINTAINERS file.

As Harald said in another message I tried taking over OpenEZX for a
while, but eventually lost interest.

JFTR some parts of the project has been backed up here:

I should also have a git backup of the wiki somewhere.

I am not aware of any active user but I'd leave the final word to
Robert, IIRC he received some EZX hardware "recently".

FWIW I think EZX code can be removed if it is a maintenance burden for
anyone.

Thank you,
Antonio
