I am the author of the preliminary w83627ehf driver.
There are several ways you can help with the further developement of the
1* Hardware donation, e.g. a motherboard with a Winbond W83627EHF chip,
with or without additional stuff (CPU, memory modules...), or something
else that can be of any use to us for the development effort. I may do
the work myself in exchange of a hardware donation, contact me directly
if you are interested.
2* Money, if you want to hire someone to do the development work. I
cannot legally do that, but other developers may.
3* Code, if you can write Linux kernel code (C). If you go that way, we
will of course try to help you when you face problems and have questions.
