Thank-you for reviewing and committing the patch Jean-Pierre. I will
work on the templates are they are not complete. I see you included
the Raspberry-Pi one, it was only rough so I'll tidy that one up and
send another patch to complete that template at least. It's easiest
for people to create templates with an example available for sure.

Best Regards, Brian.
