Hi Liming,

This is the other one. As I said, the fact that we are slipping multiple scripts in
*just* before freeze is a concern for me.
I realize it is my fault that I don't notify the release plan as early as possible even the BZ1837 is created in May and want to catch 201908 stable tag.


I have no objection to the code here though.
Thanks.


I would however request that Sean is set as author on patch 1/2 as he was
the original author of the script. (This was easy for me to find out because
the commit message was exemplary.)
In the patch series V2, Sean has been set as author on patch 1/2. Thank you for this valuable suggestion.

Best Regards
Eric


Best Regards,

Leif

I see this patch was sent a week ago. This is a standalone tool. There is no
impact on normal build and boot. I am OK to add it for 201908 stable tag.

Thanks

Hi All,

It is the request to Enable Windows Firmware Update Driver Tool in
Edk2/BaseTools and catch the Q3 tag.
The new tool will leverage the edk2-pytool-library to generate the cat/inf
file based on the cap file. The output driver package can be trigged in
Windows OS to complete capsule update.
