[RFC] BZ 1837 Enable Windows Firmware Update Driver Tool in Edk2/BaseTools for 201908 stable tag


Eric Jin <eric.jin@...>
 

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.

REF: https://bugzilla.tianocore.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1837

Patch link: https://edk2.groups.io/g/devel/topic/32780378#44992

Best Regards
Eric

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
Liming

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 have no objection to the code here though.

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.)

Best Regards,

Leif
