Re: [EXTERNAL] Re: [PATCH v9 00/13] Add the VariablePolicy feature

Bret Barkelew

I followed the process that was agreed upon in this list: I opened bugs to every platform maintainer with explicit details of what needed to be changed and waited a full month before making any further progress with the main patches (adding a month to the completion time).

I’m wrapping things up to take a vacation next week, but if there are still problems when I return, I can probably contribute to one or two platforms.

I know it has been painful to get these changes in, and I am glad that
you stuck with it. But that does not make it OK to simply break every
platform in edk2-platforms/ and not take any responsibility whatsoever
for fixing it. If it is such a trivial fix, why didn't you fix it yourself?
