I understand that, and apologize for this confusion.

That is completely correct. It was unfortunate to have so much work
pass by the list before the final name was established.

The original proposal consisted of a file format description suitable
for PC firmware, and source code for a utility that worked with this
file format. The file format was originally called ROMFS, and the
utility was originally called romtool. This code has been committed
to the svn repo, and various changes have been made to introduce the
use of this new file format, and the utility through coreboot.

The name of the file format is changing to CBFS. The description
remains the same, only the name changes. Likewise for the utility.
We're now discussing what would be a good name for the utility.
