I'm not sure what you'd prefer to do with the SeaBIOS release though. We have a couple of high-level options:
Release v1.15.0 this week without these changes (tag 64f37cc5).
Commit the smbios 3 changes (and pcie-pci-bridge changes) and release v1.15.0 in early January.
You mean v1.16.0 I guess?
I suppose we could commit the changes and try to make a release in December, but that seems like it would dilute the meaning of a "release".
If we add a 2-3 week freeze after committing the patches the release would be too late for qemu 6.2 anyway.
What are your thoughts?
So tagging v1.15.0 now and plan for 1.16.0 in january (with smbios + hotplug changes) looks good to me.
take care, Gerd
