[RESEND][PATCH v2-resend] MAINTAINERS: mark simple firmware interface (SFI) obsolete
From: Lukas Bulwahn
Date: Sun Aug 25 2019 - 13:31:14 EST
Len Brown has not been active in this part since around 2010. The recent
activity suggests that Thomas Gleixner and Jiang Lui were maintaining
this part of the kernel sources. Jiang Lui has not been active in the
kernel sources since beginning 2016. So, the maintainer's role seems to
be now with Thomas.
The referenced git tree does not exist. Instead, I found an sfi branch
in Len's kernel git repository, but that has not been updated since 2014;
so that is not worth to be mentioned in MAINTAINERS now anymore either.
Len Brown expects no further systems to be shipped with SFI, so we can
mark it obsolete and schedule it for deletion.
This change was motivated after I found that I could not send any mails
to the sfi-devel mailing list, and that the mailing list does not exist
