Some of the coreboot developers and users hang out in the #coreboot and #flashrom channel on irc.freenode.net.
Here you have the chance to talk to people being involved or interested in this project. Most of the discussion is tech talk. Questions on coreboot, OpenBIOS, firmware and related topics are welcome in #coreboot. Questions on flashrom are welcome in #flashrom.
Most people are in CET timezone, so don't give up when the channels seem very quiet for some time.
