Hi, all

Based on the discussion,
we make the conclusion to defer one week for edk2-stable202008 to
include the important patch for RiscV. Soft Feature Freeze (SFF) will
start from today (2020-08-24). Below is new edk2-stable202008 tag
planning proposed schedule
If you have any comments, please raise it.

Date (00:00:00 UTC-8) Description
2020-06-03 Beginning of development
2020-08-07 Feature Planning Freeze
2020-08-24 Soft Feature Freeze
2020-08-28 Hard Feature Freeze
2020-09-04 Release

Because SFF date is changed, if the patches passed code review before
SFF date (2020-08-24), the patches can still be merged for this stable
tag. Here is the patch list those passed code review before new SFF
date. For below features, I will let the feature owner decides whether
to merge it for this stable tag.
As of this writing:

- Mon Aug 24 12:59:59 UTC 2020

we've entered the (new) Soft Feature Freeze. (The SFF date is 2020-08-24
00:00:00 UTC-8; in UTC, that's Mon Aug 24 08:00:00 UTC 2020 -- about five
hours ago.)


Feature List:
[PATCH] EmbeddedPkg/libfdt: Add strncmp macro to use AsciiStrnCmp
I'm going to merge this soon (with Leif's review).
[PATCH v5 0/3] UefiPayloadPkg: Runtime MMCONF
The UefiPayloadPkg patches in the series (#1, #3) have not received
We have to delay this until after the stable tag.
[PATCH v4 0/8] Need add a FSP binary measurement
The SecurityPkg patches have not been approved yet, and Bret and Jiewen
are still testing / discussing (as far as I understand):
<>. Material for the next tag.

On the other hand, I'm going to push two patches that had been reviewed
before we entered the *delayed* SFF:
[PATCH 1/1] OvmfPkg/Bhyve: rename files to remove 'Pkg' infix
[PATCH] OvmfPkg/SmmControl2Dxe: negotiate

Bug List:
[PATCH 1/1] MdePkg/Include: Add missing definitions of SMBIOS type 42h
in SmBios.h
Liming, can you please merge this patch? For some reason I can't see it in
local archives! (Only responses to it.)
[PATCH v2 1/1] UefiCpuPkg/MpInitLib: Always initialize the DoDecrement
