Why not move to edk2 repo?
Edk2 would be a good place as well.
If it is being used by any external consumers, then yes edk2 makes perfect
sense.

It might still make sense to start prototyping that usage in a vendor-neutral
section of edk2-platforms.
It is actually seeing a pretty large amount of external consumption right now. To my knowledge, every IBV and most OEMs depend on MinPlatformPkg for Tiger Lake UEFI firmware implementations. Given the interest we have seen here for non-Intel MinPlatform firmware, I believe that edk2 is likely the best place for it.

Thanks,
Nate
