From: Lukas Bulwahn <email@example.com> To: Thomas Gleixner <firstname.lastname@example.org>, Len Brown <email@example.com> Cc: firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, Lukas Bulwahn <firstname.lastname@example.org> Subject: [PATCH v3] MAINTAINERS: mark simple firmware interface (SFI) obsolete Date: Mon, 26 Aug 2019 20:19:56 +0200 [thread overview] Message-ID: <email@example.com> (raw) Len Brown has not been active in this part since around 2010 and confirmed that he is not maintaining this part of the kernel sources anymore and the git log suggests that nobody is actively maintaining it. The referenced git tree does not exist. Instead, I found an sfi branch in Len's kernel git repository, but that has not been updated since 2014; so that is not worth to be mentioned in MAINTAINERS now anymore either. Len Brown expects no further systems to be shipped with SFI, so we can mark it obsolete and schedule it for deletion. This change was motivated after I found that I could not send any mails to the sfi-devel mailing list, and that the mailing list does not exist anymore.
