Re: [EXTERNAL] Re: [edk2-rfc] [RFC] UnitTestFrameworkPkg cmocka submodule alternatives

My vote is to own a fork. I agree with Laszlo that it’s very low maintenance (may even be able to automate it with an existing DevOps pipeline to run every day) and gives us the most control of our destiny.

I'm sorry, this was silly.

The whole point of git is "addressing by content". Our submodule

where that comes from is totally irrelevant.

I'm OK with the proposal as posted.
Also, apparently Neverware is part of Google:
