<p>I see your point. However, I think we need to be practical here! In this context the meaning of <code>nrf52832</code> or <code>nrf52840</code> is obvious. IMO a set of specific Makfiles, from which a board implementation can compose its configuration is a nice way to get a lean, generic code path without any unnecessary code duplication.</p>
<p>One problem I see with the 'shared-configuration-tree' for the Nordic boards is that we don't have a strict tree (at the moment) but rather some overlapping groups: e.g. <code>common/nrf52xxxdk</code> contains boards of both variants. So this can not so easily be covered by pure folder based dependencies...</p>
<p>I guess I will see if I can come up with something else then.</p>
