Hard Feature Freeze starts now for edk2-stable202008


Hi, all

  Today, we enter into Hard Feature Freeze phase until edk2-stable202008 tag is created at 2020-09-04. In this phase, there is no feature to be pushed. The critical bug fix is still allowed. So far, I know two patches need to catch this stable tag. Their impact is low. And, they both passed code review before HFF. If no objection, I will merge them for this stable tag.


https://edk2.groups.io/g/devel/message/64705 [PATCH v1 1/1] MdePkg: Correcting EFI_ACPI_DMA_TRANSFER_TYPE_16_BIT definition.

https://edk2.groups.io/g/devel/message/64728 [PATCH] MdeModulePkg/Library: change TpmMeasurementLibNull to BASE library


  If the patch is sent after Hard Feature Freeze, and plans to catch this stable tag, please add edk2-stable202008 key words in the patch title and BZ, and also cc to Tianocore Stewards, then Stewards can give the comments.


Below is edk2-stable202008 tag planning.
