[Xen-devel] EFI guest firmware for xen-ia64: where to put the sources ?


until recently, the hvm guest firmware for xen-ia64 was a private binary
file owned and delivered by Intel.

I have written an open-source implementation based on tianocore.org.

The ia64 firmware is roughly speaking EFI.  I have also ported tianocore to
Qemu/x86.  It shouldn't be hard to port it to x86.

Because the sources are big (at least 40MB) and the buildery is not easy
(build tools are java-based), I don't think it should be included in the
Xen repository like the x86 firmware.

I'd propose to create a new mercurial tree.  Are there better ideas ?
