It shouldn't be strictly required, though it's definately recommended, yes.

For instance, I've seen flashrom logs (-r, -wv, -E, etc) together with
their output on some blogs, wikis, mailing lists etc. which are
sometimes enough to tell if the board is working OK or not (e.g. requires
chipset-enable or board-enable). For these external "scraped" pages we
might not be able to find an email address, but it's still useful to
add such a tested non-working board to our list until some user shows
up in IRC/ML and helps us supporting the board.

But yes, in general, we should record who tested a certain board as
OK/BAD, if possible with email address.

That's fine, yes. Removing it from the BAD list is ok, but we should not
add it to the OK list, indeed.

Please feel free to commit.
