I'll have to put any paid work and my existing projects ahead of this discussion, but I do have experience running a similar group.
Not sure about the other points but the one about "Tools" is spot on. Device tree tooling is... I'd call it atrocious if it weren't basically non-existent. Dealing with it is the part I dread the most when I'm working on a BSP.
This morning's paper on local-first software is a good read: https://martin.kleppmann.com/papers/local-first.pdf .
Great piece by Trail of Bits, and a good reminder that language safety features are only as good as how they're used. Also, if you're reviewing #golang code, you need to kick it up a notch, and aren't sure where to begin, it's got a few good starting points.
