Re: [RFC] BZ 2067 BaseTools/Scripts: Add for edk2-stable201908 stable tag.

I am not fundamentally opposed to merging a simple script that does
not affect other code in the tree.

*But* the fact that we have multiple occurrences of this this time
around *is* a bit of a concern for me. Yes, they won't affect the
workings of anything else as part of the release. But they will not
have had any chance to be actually used by others.

For this particular script, I am also not very keen on the
implementation. It manually parses the command line and prints usage
instead of using argparse.
And it contains the sys.exit(Main()) antipattern, which does not play
well with Python3 asynchronous i/o (and hence is a bad habit to get

Since this script is truly trivial, I am OK for it to be included *if*
it is rewritten using argparse and not calling sys.exit.

Best Regards,

I would like to add below simple script to 201908 stable tag, review was sent on August 8th:

A script that can return UTC date and time in ascii format which is convenient for patching build time information in any binary.
