Severity: wishlist
Owner: Uwe Hermann <uwe@debian.org>

* Package name    : linuxbios
  Version         : 0.0+svn2006xxyy

  Description     : Free Software BIOS implementation

 LinuxBIOS is a Free Software project aimed at replacing the normal BIOS
 with a little bit of hardware initialization and a compressed Linux kernel
 that can be booted from a cold start.
   * Fast boot times (current fastest is 3 seconds)
   * Freedom from proprietary (buggy) BIOS code
   * Possibility to execute various payloads (kernel, Etherboot, OpenBIOS)
   * ...
 Note that, on newer systems, there need be no moving parts at all.
