Dear Flashrom Community!
Today I have a very exciting update for you:
As some of you might have already read the announcements in the last few
months, the flashrom project has recently decided to split into two
separate directions: flashrom, which will modernize its architecture, focus
on contemporary systems, rigorous testing, and serve as a platform for the
latest and greatest advancements, and flashrom-stable, which will maintain
the proven, slower-paced model and focus on keeping old and beloved
programmers and flash chips alive. Nico Huber, who has almost a decade of
experience with flashrom, is leading the flashrom-stable project.
In our recent monthly flashrom meeting on March 22nd , we discussed a
new leadership structure for the modern flashrom project. We concluded that
Anastasia Klimchuk should lead this project, as she has over two decades of
software development experience, including significant contributions to
flashrom, and an excellent collaborative leadership style. Anastasia will
also establish a leadership group for this project to provide a variety of
viewpoints and experiences to support flashrom.
I'd like to express my heartfelt gratitude to Anastasia for taking on this
challenge. I'd also like to extend a warm thank you to Nico for his
unwavering commitment to running flashrom-stable.
All the best,
