[MinnowBoard] Earlier questions about EDK2-Dev mailng list

Hello Everyone,

Recently there was an email on the EDK2-Devel Mailing list on the UEFI Open Source Community Website (URL: www.tianocore.org<http://www.tianocore.org>) (Email list: edk2-devel at lists.sourceforge.net<mailto:edk2-devel at lists.sourceforge.net>), which referenced on this mailing list.  (see message: "[MinnowBoard] Getting MNW2 BIOS fixes committed" June 28, 2015).

There was a problem with the EDK2-Devel mailing list which resulted in the maintainer not properly receiving  the Email request.  The reported request has been tracked on the EDK2-Devel list, and the fixes are in review and check-in process.

Also on a related note (efforts to resolve the root cause of the original issue):  the EDK2_Devel mailing list is undergoing changes soon, as noted in the following excerpt from the Edk2-Devel message: "Re: [edk2] Replacement EDK2 email list coming soon" July 6, 2015:

This new Email list should resolve the issues seen on the old EDK2-Devel list, and prevent reoccurrence of the earlier issue.

The firmware team will continue to be responsive to issues raised on both the EDK2-Devel and the Elinux-minnowboard mailing lists, though we would appreciate that firmware commits and firmware source specific items  be sent specifically to the edk2-devel list, while more specific MinnowBoard MAX system/firmware questions be sent to this list.

Thank you,

Michael Krau
